Luna Moth

Can you identify this moth?
Hi! I have attached a picture of a moth that we found on our back porch tonight. It’s a mint green color with a dark brown stripe along the top. Pretty big and very beautiful. We live in Orlando, FL (if that helps at all). We hope you can tell us what it is. Thanks,

Hi Pappas Family,
This is a Luna Moth, a species that ranges throughout the Eastern U.S. and Canada. There are two generations in the south, hence your late in the year sighting.
