After two days of nervously watching the forecast swing from clear to mostly cloudy skies, we were elated to see the clouds roll back before sunset to reveal a magnificently clear sky.  Sadly we couldn’t load the driver that goes with the telescope camera, so the moon was captured the new old-fashioned way with a digital camera on a tripod.

The moon looked great over the Ouachita Mountains tonight.

Adding flash to the picture taking added a yellowish cast to the supermoon.
