Goodnight moon.

A full moon in October is known as the Hunter’s Moon. And tomorrow night there was supposed to be a 100% full October Hunter’s Moon. Fun facts from Space.com

The moon shows its full face to Earth once a month. Well, sort of.

In fact, the same side of the moon always faces the planet, but part of it is in shadow. And, in reality most of the time the “full moon” is never perfectly full. Only when the moon, Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned is the moon 100 percent full, and that alignment produces a lunar eclipse. And sometimes — once in a blue moon — the moon is full twice in a month (or four times in a season, depending on which definition you prefer). [The Moon: 10 Surprising Facts]

I was really excited about tomorrow’s night 100% full moon. I get excited about silly things like that. When we were walking the dogs this evening, the moon was just starting to rise above the horizon…

It’s hard to get steady photos when the dog you’re walking is pulling you along…

These are the only photos I took of the Hunter’s Moon. I meant to take more but I ended up falling asleep pretty early. I wasn’t too upset because tonight the moon was 99% full. Tomorrow night will be the 100% full Hunter’s Moon. 😀🌕❤️

UPDATE: It was so overcast on Wednesday that we couldn’t even see the 100% full Hunter’s Moon. And that’s a bummer.

 

 

Goodnight moon.

The beautiful moon we saw downtown still looked every bit as pretty in Northside…

It was a very Halloweeny looking moon. Goodnight moon. 😀🌕❤️

Back to Great American Ball Park.

It’s hard to believe that we’re in the final week of the 2018 Reds baseball season. It’s also really hard to believe that we only made it out to Great American Ball Park once this season. We’ve watched almost every Reds game on TV. But between my surgeries and all the FC Cincinnati soccer games, we only took in one Reds game all the way back at the beginning of the season. Tonight, our Redlegs were playing the Kansas City Royals and we actually managed to get down to the ballpark to take in our second Reds game of the season…

This was our first time passing through a metal detector since I’ve had both of my hips replaced. When we were at the Reds back in April, I had only one replaced hip. And it didn’t set off the metal detector. But both hips set the metal detector right off. Twice. I had to explain that I had both hips replaced and then get wanded. So there’s something to look forward to for the rest of my life. It was great to finally be back at GABP…

We headed up to the new Budweiser bowtie deck…

BARGE!

We headed over to our seat in the Fioptics District to chase the last rays of sun…

I wonder how many free pizzas LaRosa’s gave away this season when the Reds pitchers tallied 11 strikeouts in a game. I’m guessing not that many…

We walked over to the gap…

I love Reds game where you feel like you have GABP all to yourself…

And then we moved down to the lower deck down the third base line…

The Reds lost. But it was great to finally be back at GABP again. It’s still one of my very favorite places in the whole world. When we were walking back to the car, check out how gorgeous the moon was above Lytle Park…

An almost supermoon.

There was an almost supermoon this evening. It was a 98.7% full moon. It’ll be a full-fledged full supermoon tomorrow night but it’s been so rainy lately that I don’t know that we’ll actually be able to see it tomorrow. And it’ll be the last supermoon until 2020 so here’s an almost supermoon…

Goodnight moon. 😀🌕🌝❤️
