The Moon was quite orange from my location at 9 pm. In addition to the high thin clouds, smoke from the fires to my north dimmed the Moon .Hand held camera 6x zoom.

Hi Frank. 

Your superb image reminds me I am due to have an easy peeler for breakfast on Tuesday morning!! waytogo.gif

I do hope those fires will be put out very soon. 

 

Aubrey.

Thanks Aubrey and sunnyday,

 

I was wrong there are fires burning north of me in Arizona but this smoke is from southern California.

 

Frank :)
