Full Corn Moon

Full Corn Moon

Full Corn Moon

Last night was the full “corn” moon.  The weather was clear here in Durham most of this week.  I looked forward to setting out a pinhole camera for a night-long exposure of the moonrise and much of its path across the sky.  I added an ear of corn to the scene in the spirit of the month’s full moon name.
