This was taken at about 2:50am. The sky was so clear and beautiful. Orion's belt was right next to the moon, but alas my camera wasn't strong enough to capture all of it.
It was eerily peaceful and spiritual to be out in the quiet with the moon--so vibrant and so close. It looked like a tiny ball of clay suspended by magic. I was grateful to have this moment to myself. With all my senses alive, yet at peace, I said a little prayer, happy to have witnessed such a rare welcoming for winter.
