A Beautiful Sublime Sunday Beneath the Full Moon...

This full moon on the first of October is the Harvest Moon. It was shining big and bright on the evening of the full moon but alas being without my good camera I wasn't able to capture any good photos for it was too dark so I just soaked it all in!.

I had captured some shots of the full moon among the pine and spruce trees the day before and also among some light clouds the day after to share with you.

The last day of September and just after midnight the full moon was peeking through the tree branches by our deck creating some beautiful displays.

Later in the evening I was able to get a clear shot of the moon to see the details of it. I count the day before and the day after the official full moon date too also be full moons. You can see in the image below there is only a slight sliver missing from the moon and the side with the missing part shows more details of the cratering on the moon's surface.

Skip ahead a couple of days to the day after the full moon and I had stepped out to check if the moon would be giving a show that evening (or should I say early hours of the morning for it was after midnight.) There was enough light in the sky for the clouds to be highlighted but at first I didn't see the moon until it broke above the tree tops looking glorious among those light clouds.

Close to the full moon there was a bright orange star. EarthSky relayed the information that -

Mars is at its brightest until the year 2035 – will be near the Harvest Moon in late September and early October.

Waiting for clearings in the clouds I zoomed in closer to see the details of the moon's surface which fascinates me! I wonder what made all those craters and what are those lines running out from the dot at the base of the moon ( that dot that has lines radiating out of it shows up on the upper part of the moon in the Southern Hemisphere opposite to where it is in the northern hemisphere - an observation of @papilloncharity as we use to compare moon shots being we live on opposite ends of the world, I'm in Canada and he is in South Africa)
