Sky Watch Friday- Night approaching- Moon arising


These pictures were taken from my front yard in midtown Tucson, looking out in three directions. The Santa Catalina mountains, to the north of Tucson, are in the background of this first one.


The Tucson Mountains can just be seen at the bottom of this picture looking west. And the moon is just rising in the southern portion of the Sky in the picture below!

Love the sunset silhouettes, so beautiful with the mountains. My camera doesn't like twilight hours (read: I don't really know how to operate it all that well). Thanks for stopping by.

What a nice scenery!
You're very lucky to see such a nice scenery from your front yard.
I live in Tokyo and we don't have much nature. So I'm jealous of you! I wish there were much nature in Tokyo like these pictures!
