It looks as though it will be cloudy tomorrow night, so here’s a few pictures of the almost full moon. Itwas almost as bright as midwinter here at 6pm tonight as the almost full moon shone on the fjord!
It was interesting to see that the moon set at about 10am this morning in the north west just before I left for the office in town, and just before I got home I notice an orange glow behind Forbordsfjellet at just after 17:30. The moon is therefore in the sky for about 16 hours at the moment! This mirrors the sun in summer which also sets and rises in similar positions and this is actually for the same reason!
The first full moon of the year was tonight and it briefy made an appearance from behind the clouds…the next is also in January, on the 31st and is called a blue moon, no doubt as two ful moons in the same month happens once in a “blue moon”
My daughter is coming over to stay this evening and when I came home I saw a light in the loft bedroom and thought she must have arrived and then realised it was a moon reflection :)
…and a moonheartbow (heart shaped moonbow) :)
