Super Moon
Some snaps from around the world, courtesy BBC.

Too much light pollution here so no moon at all.

I was reminded of a Vietnamese friend called Moon who I haven't seen for a couple of years and then I got to thinking ... I can't remember the last time I saw any moon, let alone a harvest one.

And stars? What are they?

Anyone else with the same problem?

Sadcryface

RE: Harvest Moon
No, I get mooned regularly. Tongue

Seriously though, always a Moon here - giant one last night. It was so bright, I thought the new neighbors must have installed a yard light. Shy

No, and you need to get out of there and see the stars now and then.

I can't imagine that, or living underground, or anything else that obscures nature's beauty continuously. No

RE: Harvest Moon
I spend time moon gazing all summer, and whenever there are no clouds the rest of the year. Last night's moon was spectacular, as was the one the day before... we had a nice, warm night and I was outside at 5 am sipping my morning coffee and contemplating the moon and the stars. Watching the sun rise. Love it! Thumbsup

We can see the moon, but we can't see a wide abundance of stars.

Years ago, when we did the family camping thing, we camped in this area of California deep in the redwoods. You couldn't find the sky, but a short walk on a trail led to a clearing. People, hundreds of them with blankets on the ground watched the stars.

I honestly never knew there were so many. Blush


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

SpaceWeather has a good gallery of the eclipse photos.

Penumbral Eclipse of the 2016 Harvest Moon

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.
