Seeing is believing?

The gorgeous near-full moon (or is it full?) illuminated the early-morning sky as well as the D&L trail outside my window.

This picture captured red-dot reflections close to the moon’s aura and even further away in spots that appear to be in a line.  Do you see them?

Are the dots really there?  Are they just  reflections?  Was it just an illusion created by atmospheric  conditions or a photographic anomaly?  Was it a UFO?

What do you believe?  Seeing may cause many to believe what others believe they see or something entirely different.

An old adage, “Don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see” jumps to  mind.  

Watching TV documentaries about UFOs, illusions and photographic manipulations has made that adage all so true.  Life experience has taught me the same experience can yield entirely different perceptions from each who ‘see’ it.

What we choose to believe stems from our own perceptions, no matter what the truth is.  We’ve all been given the gift of free will.  My hope is that we would each respect everyone else’s belief as we would hope they would respect ours.
