1. Neat! This looks familiar to some moths I've seen in the Ozarks, not quite like the neat Luna moths

I've seen too there, but this one you have pictured here (by the way, a great picture!), I'm not sure what this is. Hope you find out what it is, I'd be interested too in finding out about. I haven't seen too many of these (the one you pictured), but they remind me of a mean looking critter w/ hostile eyes...

2. Those are common in

the mid-west. I found a recently deceased one once and put it in a cigar box, it was almost too big to fit. But it was eaten by mites after a short spell... glad I kept it in the garage.

In high elevation of Montana, I saw one with no color, just grey and white with a little black. It was pretty big and I was astonished to see a moth that size at 7,000ft elevation. I took pictures of that one since it was on the doorstep at my workplace early in the morning and I had my camera in the car. I don't know what became of it after I entered the building.
