Oh Great Moon

Tomorrow  we are due to see a Super Moon and Lunar Eclipse around 02.07 BST (27th/28th Sept).

The eclipse is expected to start at 01.11 BST and the moon will turn yellow.
At 03.11 BST the moon will enter the darkest part of the shadow, so should disappear.
The point of the greatest eclipse 03.47 BST and the sky show will be over by 05.22 BST Monday morning. (Source BBC)

It is doubtful I shall be awake, but if we relied on taking a picture tomorrow, you can bet your butt that it will either rain, the moon will be obscured by cloud, or we’ll forget.

So, in lieu of the big event, have a look at this : pictures taken 7.50 pm 26th Sept. Neither were taken with a flash.
No eclipse, but wow, what a moon!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I love the way you captured the moon’s reflection in the water.
