Red, White & Blue Moon

I write LPOD the night before it appears. So now its the evening of July 4th, American Independence Day, with fireworks already crackling through the night, but cloud and rains threaten the fireworks. Vincent's Moon provides all the patriot colors in case the fireworks fizzle. I hope you all, including non-Americans, have a great holiday weekend.
