Moon Over the Gas Station
iPhone Astrophotography: The Moon Over the Gas Station.
We had a snow storm Saturday night into Sunday. I cleaned off the cars and the driveway on Sunday morning, but then stayed home for the rest of the day. When I took the kids to their father’s before work today I realized that I was a touch low on gas. I could probably get to work, but probably couldn’t get there and back without a fill up.
After dropping the kids off I went to a gas station near their dad’s house. I hit the button next to the driver’s seat to open up the gas tank and went outside… and the gas tank didn’t open. Ummm. That’s never happened before. I tried again. Nothing. I tried prying it open with the only tool I had on me, a pen cap. Nothing. Eventually, after about five minutes of digging and prying with the pen cap, and hitting the button over and over again, it opened and I could fill up. I took a picture of the moon to memorialize the occasion.
Happy New Year.
