This morning while I was waiting for the car to warm up, I looked up to see in which phase Luna is in the twilight sky. Jupiter and the waning crescent Moon were close together. I ran inside, got my camera and captured a photo, before I drove Sara to school.
The Waning Gibbous Perigee Moon looks very beautiful in the background of our Christmas lit house. I captured some photos, before the Moon was too high in the sky.
UPDATE: Ha! About an hour after I took these photos, the clouds rolled in with thunder and lightning. What a lucky moment I went outside and saw the Moon, in time.
Tonight, I had to wait a little bit before I could capture the Moon. It was clear, first. But then I waited to long. And the sky was covered with some clouds, preventing me from capturing photos of Luna. So, I waited another half an hour and the sky was clear again. 😀
Tonight’s Waxing Crescent Moon is hiding behind the clouds, plays “peek-a-boo” and covers in some haze. And a little bit later, the sky is clear.
In 2017 the Hunter’s Full Moon rises in early November, due to the Harvest Moon was in early October and therefore closest to the Autumnal Equinox. Coincidental, it is the second largest Moon of this year. It will rise ride after sunset, and set at dawn.
