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.

    Don’t Fire That Son-Of-A-Bitch !!!

    First he says “fire that son-of-a-bitch,” and then about NK ICBM’s he says “don’t fire that son-of-a-bitch.”

    Update: SUPER COP !!! Ricky McCarver

    In fact, in spite of the fact that McCarver is not a rookie, he looks an awful lot like both William Eric Freeman and Danny Golden, both Huntsville cops that got themselves killed largely with their own stupidity. What did McCarver do wrong? Plenty. First, like the two rookies mentioned, McCarver apparently acted impetuously. He knew he was responding to a situation where there had already been violence, he could see that John Lee Bullard was twice his size, and yet he went ahead and confronted Bullard without any backup what-so-ever. In fact, other bus riders had to utilize the radio in McCarver’s squad car to call for assistance. How stupid is that?

    The NRA’s Gun Totin’ Weirdos

    And besides, who ever heard of sauntering into the old west saloon with a long gun in the first place? Surely you watch TV. In all the westerns I’ve seen, when the cowboy crashes through the swinging saloon doors with a rifle, he’s either looking for the bad buy so he can shoot him, or he is the bad guy and he’s gonna shoot somebody. Either way, he isn’t looking for trouble, he is trouble.

    Donald Trump’s Historic REALTIME Tweets

    Maybe it’s just sour grapes. That fact is, I couldn’t respond quickly enough to retweet for my 12 (?) followers, and so was upstaged by… Scott Pelley. How can I get more followers when I’m up against that kind of competition. Well, to CBS and all the others, you can count on this – as God is my witness – I will continue to do my part to proliferate the national hysteria when this phenomena happens again !!!
