I also want to plug another group of sky watchers who post a photo and explanation every day. I have enjoyed this site of a daily basis for several years. These photographers have much grander cameras then we do, although they sometimes use everyday cameras. The site is Astronomy Picture of the Day hosted by NASA with contributors from around the world. The following links will give you an idea of the breadth of photos posted on this site.

Sky Watch Friday - Full moon and clouds
This sequence of pictures of the full moon was taken on the night of September 15 between 10:00 and 10:30 PM EDT. I had gone out earlier to try to capture the harvest moon rising, but the clouds intervened, so no photos of a big, orange moon over the fields. The streaks in the second photo are the wingtip lights of a passenger jet headed for Baltimore.
