Moon and Balloon in the Afternoon

I live next to a grass runway airfield, so we see prop planes and hot air balloons all the time. I was watering my bushes when I saw this balloon getting closer to the moon so I ran inside to get my camera. I was really hoping to see the balloon occult the moon, but this close approach was still photo worthy.

With the number of historic planes and other small aircraft in the area, I'm really hoping for a photo of a balloon or a plane in front of the moon. Here's hoping!
