Full sturgeon moon

August 25, 2018 , last night ,I was up about midnight ,I was feeding a very hungry cat, and looked out the kitchen window, and the moon was shining down and lit up the back yard. It reminded me of Halloween, the way the grey clouds surrounding the moon gave it a surreal look. At first look it was kind of scary, and then I thought how beautiful the sight was.
