There’s a moon out tonight

Yes folks, most nights there is a moon out there.  Sometimes we can see it and sometimes we can’t.  If you want to see it with your naked eyes, tonight is a good time because it will be closer then most of the year.  However, if you have even a cheap telescope, mine only cost $200, you can get fantastic views anytime.  Best time to view is when it’s NOT full, because then it will have some shadows, which gives viewers a better chance to see craters and mountains.  Below is a video of the moon moving across my computer screen, taken a while age, why it’s pink I don’t know.  Enjoy the view.
