For today's Skywatch Friday post, I dug back into my archives and came across some photos I took over Christmas break. We were on our way to Colorado which means a stop in Casper, Wyoming. I would say we were about 50 miles from our destination when we happened to notice this gorgeous full moon. In fact, when we first spotted the moon, it was orange-red. That faded by the time we could safely pull over the car for me to snap a couple of shots. Still, the moon is spectacular in its girth.
PS - I have no idea what the red dot is. Possibly an airplane light? I would say it's a star but it moved substantially over the three or four photos I shot.
