friday night's 'supermoon scouting mission' was undertaken to identify good views to the north-east for saturday's looming lunar disc, but problematic light, and more significantly, trouble on the horizon in the form of cloud banks, suggested getting a shot might prove fact that is often the reality here on the coast.. media previews of pending celestial events seem to work like a weather forecast, telling you that the night in question will be a cloudy one...and that turned out to be the case yesterday least some pbase friends like Bryan Murahashi and Vatorman managed excellent shots of the big yellow moon

You may have not gotten the moon but this is wonderful scene too. I like the light and dramatic sky and pops of color. V.

Tres bien pensé avec ces flotteurs rouges ( v )

The exact same thing happens here - the Astronomy Society send out excited emails and then there's nothing but cloud cover.
This is a very attractive scene with the red bouys matching the massive crane on the docks. V
