Imperial Moth

Eacles imperialis

Description:

I didn't know what kind of moth to list because I've never seen anything like this before in my life. I've seen a moth with simular colors but it was small, this moth was so big, the wing span was as big as my hand. I looked online and saw what a Chickweed Geometer looked like and the colors and marking are spot on but the antenea are all wrong, and it has the wing shape of a Tulip Tree Beauty moth but none of them were this color. I hope one of you know what this is. It just doesn't look like something that belongs in Joplin, Missouri.
