We've been sitting under the stars all night looking at the insanely illuminated moon. It is beyond words gorgeous. It was giving a VERY intense energy. I have never seen anything like before. Anyone else see it? Got pictures? I only had my dinky iPhone camera. I'll post pictures (albeit, crappy) when I get to a PC. Thanks for reading! I am fascinated to hear your comments.


Peace.

Are you kidding?

I jumped up out of bed because I thought a police helicopter was shinning a spot light through my bedroom window.

Seriously.

Goodness, that was a VERY bright moon.

Yes last night was a special moon.



HARVEST MOON: Tonight's full Moon has a special name--the Harvest Moon. It's the full moon closest to the northern autumnal equinox (Sept. 22). In years past, farmers depended on the light of the Harvest Moon to gather ripening crops late into the night. Electric lights have since replaced it, but the Moon could still do the job if called upon:

THANKYOU

Loved your explanation of the name, Mars.
(I kept forgetting why it's called like that!)

May I reward you - and the OP - with a link to "Harvest Moon", by one of my favourite painters, Samuel Palmer?

Oh the moon last night was b-e-a-utiful!

I was out at about 1am, being amazed by the brightness and the shadows it was casting


The sweetest part was that the moon had a giant halo around it, just a huge clear spot in the sky with the moon slap bang in the middle of it..

I must have stayed out a good few hours, just entranced..(am I a werewolf? Maybe that's for another thread
) Pretty cold though!

There is nothing quite like a moonlit night, is there?


Lucky you.
I heard from a couple of friends in the USA today: they also had a STUNNING sight.

I saw it from the outskirts of the Venetian lagoon.
It was nice, of course, but with a foggy halo all around it. A slightly depressing sight, to be honest, and certainly nothing as spectacular as what you are describing.

What is the "Blowing up the Moon" party?
Sounds alarming.

Do not be alarmed i too thought they were going to bomb the moon but after some discussion on this site i changed my mind on that.



A Nasa spacecraft will deliberately crash into the Moon next week on a mission that could enhance the prospects of establishing a manned lunar base.

From www.timesonline.co.uk...
Will not see it from UK so i will be glued to ATS for my news on this.

Love that song....
Yes I was out about 5 hours ago at 6pm and it was the most brightest, yellow moon I recall seeing. usually it's more white. I put it down to dust residue from the dust storms, but it was still so bright. I didn't get a pic cos one child was demanding attention and didn't tune into the energy either for the same reason.
Now it's decided to cloud over and rain so I miss out.

I haven't noticed any difference. Where I live, there have been a few days in the past couple of weeks that the weather had been conducive to contrails...and I have seen contrails (both the quickly dissipating type and the persistent type -- depending on the weather conditions).

I specifically remember this because I was watching a couple of sunsets in the past few weeks (as I often like to do) and noticed the jetliners making sun-lit orange contrails.

...but back on topic -- The nearly full Moon was as beautiful as ever last night.

Speaking of the moon, 5 days from now on Oct 9th a little bit after 4am EST NASA will be bombing the moon, if you have a clear night/morning and a small telescope you should be able to see the debris cloud from the impact around the lunar south pole.

I was up all night and could see the moon shining all over the place casting shadows. I was also in the moonlight for quite some time. I am happy to report that I did not get moonburned.
