Moonscapes

Shorter days do have one magnificent advantage.

When else is your daily walk likely to include a light show like this one?

Gute nacht.

*************************

For the astronomically minded, the moon pictured is a waning gibbous, 99% of full.  I'd never heard the term "gibbous" until a month ago when a second grader explained it to me.  Does knowing the definition make it any more beautiful?  Of course not, but I've always gotten a thrill from being able to name things, especially in the natural world.  I think it might run in the family.
