It can give us refreshing scenes, it can bring us calming breezes, or it can sometimes bring us devistating storms, but it always brings change.

Last night as I was walking with my friend, at the end as we turned towards home I saw a lone cloud in the sky, the road led straight to it and it was the only thing visible in the sky other than the moon as the sun was setting.  This cloud was lit from behind with a bright orange glow that surrounded the edges and peeked through in thin spots from within the cloud.  As we hit the house I ran inside to grab my camera.  The camera couldn’t quite capture the brilliance of the glow, but it is close.

As the sun continued to set, the moon slowly became the brightest object in the sky.  I have tried to capture the moon here as the sky began to darken while the horizon was still lit by the sun going down.

A couple nights before, as we were coming home I saw the moon as it was setting.  22% Waxing Crescent.
