The September Harvest Supermoon! This image was captured in Quincy, Illinois by 📸 Stellar Sky Imagery and shared by the Illinois Storm Community.

They also noted: In exactly one week Illinois will have the chance to witness the annular solar eclipse. Max eclipse will be at 11:54 am with around 55% of the sun being eclipsed by the moon. Under clear skies, this will be an awesome warm up for the April 2024 full eclipse. It's not too late to find solar glasses for viewing these eclipses either!

The last supermoon of the year came up in it's brilliant, bright orange fashion. Hoping to find an actual harvest in progress proved to be too much of a challenge so I managed to find some wildflowers obscuring fields of beans awaiting their turn to be harvested. *For best viewing, click to see the full image*

Most DMV's don't know about this change to the Illinois vehicle code, but a veteran rated 50% or higher with the VA can now get one set of service places for free. It used to be 100% rating
(625 ILCS 5/3-609) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-609)
(b) Any veteran who holds proof of a service-connected disability from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, and whose degree of disability has been declared to be 50% or more, but whose disability does not qualify the veteran for a plate or decal for persons with disabilities under Section 3-616, may, without the payment of any registration fee, make application to the Secretary for a special registration plate or digital registration plate without the international symbol of access for the registration of one motor vehicle of the first division, one motorcycle, or one motor vehicle of the second division weighing not more than 8,000 pounds.
