On the evening of July 20, 2021, I looked up and saw what appeared to be the Moon in Eclipse. I was use to see the Moon like this when rising, but it was very high in the sky and also was phased. I realized that the California Fires were creating the Eclipsed effect and being only 3 miles from the Ocean, the smoke was creating this beautiful Moon. It was very hard to focus properly because of the polluted atmosphere, but I did my best. Oh, did I mention that I was only 3 miles from the "Atlantic Ocean". Neptune, N.J.. 2000 miles away.
