Moonrise in Twilight

Moonrise in Twilight

On the eve of the Blood Moon, we witnessed the moon rising at sunset as we cruised at 39,000 feet. The separated bands of colored light marked the boundary of twilight as we looked through its cross-section at the rising moon. While low on the horizon, the moon loomed large as it first appeared in dusted amber through the haze of the aerial horizon and then grew smaller, sharper and more reflective as it climbed in the night sky.

[And at that moment I thought to myself, “why didn’t I pack a longer lens?”]
