Fall, Front Passage, Clouds, and the Moon

Late fall on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA is marked by rapid front passages, quick changes in weather, and cloud formations that change just as quickly. It is also marked by wondrous color that marks the forests. This sketch was during one of those rapidly changing days. Sketching the moon was planned but changed because of blocking clouds. Then the sky would clear briefly to catch a daytime view at higher magnification. It is a wonderful reminder of the thin line of life, weather, water cycle, and color that marks earth’s surface: deliberately created and sustained in a system so we have the opportunity to seek the Creator of it all, Jesus Christ, or refuse to believe.

About rolandlinda3

We avidly enjoy the observation of God's creation in terms of stars, the moon, and earthly things. We teach others to observe what He has made. Part of the outreach and work is to maintain a site: www.christworksministries.org [or use the new address www.cwm4him.org]. This site has been changed to include this blog along with three other inspirational blogs. We invite you to take a look and follow us there. Whether here or at the new site, our purpose is unchanged. We aim to share the love of Jesus Christ, who has graciously kept us and made us excited about seeing what he has made. Our faith is a walking faith, so faith and works, as much as we are able, are married together.

One Response to Fall, Front Passage, Clouds, and the Moon

    This is an unusual time for most amateur astronomers to observe, but I find the rapid changes, day-time views of the moon set on blue or clouded skies, and the fall season contribute to magnificent views of God’s creation. Now it is 2010, but I love these times as much as when I sketched during this 2008 period. Go to www. christworksministries.org and then to the Inspiration Page to see more sketches and stories from the skies. Roland
