Competing forces

A few weeks ago I was still walking Bella on her long walk at 5:30 in the morning.  Something that I found so interesting was that the moon seemed to be daring the sun... it was a competition in my eyes.

The moon was out full force in the night...it reminded me of a huge flashlight shining a path on the ocean.

Then the next morning, as the sun was rising, it was still daring the sun...
still high in the sky.
The sun won...because it took over the moon's bright light, even if the moon was still hanging there for all of us to admire
:)

Very cool. My kids always like to see the moon when it's light out.

Every now and then however, the moon sneaks up on the sun and gets in front of it and blocks its rays!

I remember those really bright moons in Belize that made it easy to navigate a boat at night. Not when the moon wasn't out though.

That really is one bright moon. Looks like a lighthouse light.
