I see the moon

As a child, I was always fascinated by the moon. I haven't been in a better place to see it now than Oklahoma. The vast expanse of sky on clear night will make even the faintest star bright. The moon was especially clear, clouds were almost non existent, and the color of the moon gave the night an especially special feel. The bright and dark spots gave such contrast to the orange orb that I was mesmerized by its brilliance.
