The closest super moon in nearly 70 years rose into a night sky filled with smoke from forrest fires giving a dramatic reddish yellow hue to the sacred orb.

Super Moon 2016

The Super Moon has risen! I was concerned earlier that the Forrest fires providing hazy dense smog today would hamper tonight’s photographic marvel. Not so. In fact, the hazy atmosphere has provided a reddish yellow hue to the super moon, a color combination with the added background of the AmSouth Building in downtown Huntsville that reminds me of my High School Alma Mater. This shot is presented in remembrance of Butler High School and it’s iconic green and gold colors.

The absolute optimum is actually early tomorrow morning, but hay, I’m done for the evening. You can still get out there and view this once in a lifetime event.

    Charlottesville !!! It’s About The Constitution Stupid !

    And for Mr. Trump, I’ve stated my opinion that the monuments should be moved. Beyond that, I can’t possibly see how you could have handled the situation in Charlottesville any better. You’ve got my approval rating for this one.

    Hillaryous | Obama Radicalized, Seditious

    What is naive, is to think the US government is unaware and unable to stop terrorism before it happens. Donald J. Trump admitted he knew about 911, but people still don’t seem to get it. Terrorism is planned decades in advance. The ONLY way to end the terrorism facilitated by a government, CIA, FBI and MIC that are already radicalized and ultra-extreme is to stop voting for the establishment radicals – whether they are career politicians or not.

    Alabama Confederate Monuments Are Racism Pure And Simple

    As a native Alabamian, I am sick and tired of the perpetuation of stupidity that the damn monument represents. If you wish to honor your relative dead for more than 150 years, let it be done in Maple Hill cemetery, where this particular monument belongs.

    Lee High School Bus Crash Conspiracy

    REVISION (2014.06.07): It should be noted that State of Alabama DOT officials have never explained publicly why they removed EVERY gate from ALL fenced areas under the elevated portions of I565 in Huntsville, from Oakwood Ave. to Jordan Lane, three months before the Lee Bus Massacre. The removal of the gate on Church Street did facilitate fast access to the bus crash and the victims, however, prescience seems to be indicated.

    Amazon Reigns In Washington Post

    Commercialize, commercialize, commercialize. How many ways are there to commercialize? The thought is a little bit scary.

    Where’s Colin Kaepernick?

    Our leaders are in denial of what is obvious at face value. The biggest threat to the future of this country is the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement.
