Share Your Desktop – February 2021

I’m feeling a little lunar (or loony) this month and have delved into the archives of my ‘Moon’ folder.

If I can’t see the Moon because of cloud cover – and that is an all too frequent occurrence at the moment due to our wet season – I may as well assign a photo of it to my desktop so I can gaze upon it daily.

Here’s the photo I selected πŸŒ•

This photo was taken at 10:36 pm on January 25, 2019, and (in my opinion) is one of the best I’ve ever taken of our fabulous satellite. It was a waning gibbous at 76% illumination and, for the life of me, I cannot remember why it appeared so orange.

I suspect there had been a bushfire somewhere. Here’s a close up.

This next photo was taken less than a minute later where you can see a dark shadow or cloud creeping across the surface. Perhaps this was/is smoke from said bushfire.

    1. Thank you Aletta. I’ve been shooting (for) the Moon for a few years now and like to think I get it right sometimes. Thank you for those gorgeous flowers, they brightened my day πŸ₯°
