Yes, it's a cartoon. It works for me. Go figure. The link also contains the proper credits to the author and publisher, don't know why it wouldn't work.
No big deal just thought it was funny.

Great photos again Keith,

Give my best wishes to the better half.

So that sunset with the bright oranges is tinkered with? Regardless, that might even look better as a background on my iMac. I sent you an Email about it. Now you have to stop posting those photos because I already have a nice sunset photo, or two, or three.........

And what the heck is a House of Pot store? Is it as the name implies?

Keith I have a question I know you can answer.

It is about 10:45 pm CDT where I am. I was outside listening to a flock of coyotes passing through the area and I noticed the moon in the southwestern sky. It appears to be about a 5/8 moon.

Question: What would you be seeing when you look at the moon at this same time?

Bill, I will send you that pic - and since you have a Mac, you can do it yourself in about 10 seconds. I'll explain that in the email

The House of Pot - Home of Pot, or Home DePot if you prefer...

Perhaps you would prefer the sky in blue for those quieter moments...

Now that is weird, I was thinking the exact same thing last night when looking at the moon. I noticed the moon in the picture and it was slimmer than here.

Bud, from one new moon to the next takes about 4 weeks, so roughly 1/2 moon change every week. In other words it goes from nothing to half, then full, then half and back to nothing, taking about a week for each.

Since we all get new moon (that's when you can't see the moon) at the same time, we should also get first quarter, full etc. at the same time.

I just took a peek at the moon here (9:45 local time) and it looks like about a day before first quarter, or just slightly less than half the moon showing.

This would make sense as first quarter is at 6:29 universal time tomorrow.

Jim, I thought that would be a bit odd if the moon didn't look about the same for both of us at the same time, and then I noticed that the picture was a couple of days old before I posted it...that's why the crescent looked thinner.

Another astronomical mystery solved!

Just the standard 70-300 zoom, set right out to 300. Put the camera on a tripod and used the remote shutter button. Otherwise it's difficult to get a clear picture.

Considering that the moon is nearly 1/4 million miles away, it's very easy for the slightest motion to make it blurry.

Incidentally, if you shut the flash off and leave it on auto, it doesn't work very well. The pic will be way overexposed. Leave the flash on and there seems to be enough light getting to the chip.

This is what happens without the flash and still on auto.

Keith, we are on the same page, the moon looks like that here also. I thought for some reason it may look different at different locations. I have one of the atomic clock/thermometer/date/moon phase deals my uncle gave me and it is reading the same as your picture.

Buddy, your camera does take some fantastic pictures, I was going to ask you to take a picture of your camera but... (one of my more brilliant moments). Is photography one of your hobbies? If it isn't, it should be, you are really great at taking pictures.

Me too! Now I am really confused even though it has been explained.

Oh well...just a sudden curiosity.

Thank you Keith for the explanation, and the great photos.
