Sky watch Friday - Season # 4 - Episode # 9

Sky Watch Friday this is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link a 2:30 PM EDT.

This past week has been the time of the full moon. I took my best camera, the Canon Powershot SX10IS, to capture the sight and was very pleased with the results. You can see a lot of great sky shots above.
