Welcome to the fun of Sky Watch! Your first submissions are terrific! I do love the moon! I was born and raised in Dallas, went to the University of North Texas in Denton and my son, now works for the Dallas branch of UNT. I have lived in the northwest for nineteen years first in Portland and now in Seattle. So it's fun to see a fellow Texan. I am one of the hosts on Sky Watch and just wanted you to know we're always glad to have new followers! Hope you have a wonderful weekend -- and hopefully a lot more blue skies than I've seen recently! Enjoy!

The lunar eclipse was nothing short of spectacular. You must have had a special lens to capture this beauty. I'm in awe. Happy Sky Watch!!
