SkyWatch Friday - "The moon at night is big and bright . ."


A beautiful full moon at Wirrialpa Station



we were tempted to howl at it
but curbed our enthusiasm for fear 
of upsetting the farm dogs


no wonder primitive people were frightened
when they were robbed of the light of the full moon


even for us it was mildly eerie
watching the eclipse.

  5. Seems the desire to howl comes from our Pleistocene souls. What a delightful night.

  6. An amazing cap for a perfect vacation. I'm in awe of your pictures and a tad envious that you saw the eclipse. I couldn't stay up ... It was around three a.m here. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Great to see these things. Our farm dogs used to howl on moonlit nights without any human encouragement; in fact, despite a good deal of discouragement. Most astronomical wonders are usually hidden by clouds in this country.
