“The moon is friend for the lonesome to talk to.” ― Carl Sandburg

This photo of a very full moon over Grizzly Peak was shared by Patch reader Scott McAfee.

"The last full moon of winter, taken from Albany Hill as it rose over Grizzly Peak.  KPFA Antenna in the foreground (a little less than four miles away)."

If you have an awesome photo of nature, breath-taking scenery, kids caught being kids, a pet doing something funny or something unusual you happen to catch with your camera, we'd love to feature it on Patch. 

Post it for free in our "Town Square" section on the site or email it to autumn.johnson@patch.com.

Yeah, I figured I could get away with it since I took it from my house on Madison Street <grin>. More about it on my blog, including another picture: http://blog.sankmcafee.com/2014/03/111/ Thanks for making it photo of the week. -Scott

2000mm focal length? No wonder. ;-) What kind of telescope are you using?
Scott McAfee March 22, 2014 at 05:07 PM
Heh, yeah. Celestron C8, an 8" Cassegrain reflector. A little too much focal length to get the whole moon.
