Tonight’s Rising Moon and Late Afternoon Light

It was a perfect evening to make several quick stops. And there was so much to see!

Below is a slideshow of a few pics from Lower Cape tonight.

Super Blue Moon

The second full moon of the first month of the year. This year is off to a great start.

I did one of the things I would suggest to anyone visiting the area and was able to get this shot.

A Glimpse of the Divine

It seems obvious, of course, to say the moon is enormous. It is, after all, a full moon, a SUPER moon, right?

It really isn’t much of a surprise to observe that despite being hidden behind layers of clouds it out shined the man made light along the shore.

And it was more than a thing that carved a gargantuan swath of light from the darkness.

Like so many things in Nature that are truly awesome, it was a glimpse of the divine.

The “Full Cold Moon” Super Moon


Over the next few days I will be looking for the moon. Tonight the moon rose at about 96% illumination and tomorrow night it will be over 99%.  The moon rises at 3:54 p.m. on Saturday  and 4:42 p.m on Sunday. It sets at 5:13 a.m. Saturday and 6:36 a.m. on Sunday.

At 10:23 a.m. Sunday, the moon will be full.

There will be some clouds around all weekend.


The moon is silent. It has no agenda. It has the coveted perfection of just being. We are connected by the moon because the beauty is shared with all. Often we feel this connection deeply while aware others are experiencing the same beauty at the same moment.

2017 Super Moon


This is the closest the moon has come to the earth since 1948. It won’t be this close again until 2034.

I made sure I got out there tonight for the rising moon because I don’t know where I’ll be in 2034 but I won’t be smelling that good.
