Moon-rise Over Spring Fire

From the first day of the Spring Fire (yesterday) in Costilla County, Colorado, it has been an exceptionally photogenic and dramatic-looking fire. Tonight was no exception as this freeze-frame from live-streaming Viaero webcam convincingly demonstrates. Image courtesy of Viaero Wireless.

Seventy-Four Years Ago Right Now

This was happening tonight here, but early tomorrow morning there:

For my foreign readers who are not familiar with this event, this was the Western Allied amphibious assault (a.k.a. Operation Neptune) on German forces in Normandy, France, as the tip of the spear of a broader invasion of Nazi-controlled Western Europe known as Operation Overlord in June, 1944, per the agreement at the Tehran Conference a year earlier.
I just had a profound & profund realization & revelation.... while heavily buzzed on a delightful red blend.
