I’m sure most of you were aware that this past Friday, June 13, was special because there was also a full moon that night. The combination of a full moon on a Friday the thirteenth is fairly rare. It won’t happen again until 2049. If I’m still around, I would be 107 the next time this combination occurs, so I really was looking forward to seeing the full moon Friday evening.
Unfortunately, Friday was rainy and cloudy. Betsy and I went out shortly after the time of the moonrise, but we could see nothing but clouds. We went out again an hour or so later and could see some stars over head, but still no moon.
A little later we finally got a glimpse of the moon playing peek-a-boo with the clouds and the trees. I attempted to get some decent photos without a great deal of success.
Finally the moon poked through a clear patch of sky and I was able to get a fairly decent picture. I’m glad I got to see this full moon, because I’m really not convinced that I’ll be around the next time there is a full moon on Friday the thirteenth.
