Full Harvest Moon

 September 29 - Full Harvest Moon

Breaks in some thin clouds allowed this snap
of the Full Moon this morning about 6:30AM.

The Full Moon this morning was almost due west when
I snapped this photo, about an hour before moonset.
Moonlight is reflecting off Puget Sound. In the lower part
of the image is the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship which
arrived at Pier 91 moments earlier. The red beacon tops the
86 meter (282 foot) mast of the M5 Yacht

In the days before the Internet the Old Farmer's Almanac
provided moon watching info.


  1. Beautiful captures of the Harvest Moon. We had cloudy skies here and missed it, :( Lovely photos. Take care, have a happy weekend.

  2. Your picture is really quite good, John. And so nice to see your "face" in my blog posts. :-)

  3. Nice moon shot over Puget sound.

  4. These are beautiful photographs of the Harvest Moon.

    All the best Jan

  5. The moon this past few days has been huge on the horizon as it rose. Just beautiful.
