It was supposed to be the best view we could have of the midsummer night's moon as it rose, closest to the earth than any other day this year.
It was a pleasant day, and we packed a picnic dinner, and off we went to Magnuson Park to catch the moon.
There were too many clouds, however, and we missed the moon, but in the west was a glorious kaleidoscope of shifting clouds, catching the brilliant hues of the evening sun at nine o'clock.
