Saw the crescent moon through clouds just the other night and it reminded me of a little quick sketch during an evening at a campground. It was one of those very fast opportunities...then its gone. The story and sketch (there is religious content) is the new post under the blog site (address under my signature).

Roland,

Nice sketch of the crescent Moon.

It is once again putting on a nice show here right now but about to set. Likely down already for you out east.

Frank :)

I only saw it for seconds the other night then it disappeared. When the sketch was done in December, I at least had 15 minutes so I could do a sketch. My brain is not good enough to handle just a few seconds then do it from memory....without a lot of error. Glad you enjoyed the post.

Thanks all. No more observing in the US for a bit...we are headed for the Philippines. Hope to do some there as we train others.
