This may be a little off topic, but interesting nevertheless...

Reflected light from Venus, like the moon, can also produce a shadow. Of course a "Venus shadow" is very dim, and it takes a bit of work to actually see it, but when Venus is very bright, there can be a shadow.

Here are a couple of articles from a few years ago (when Venus was very bright) that discuss shadows cast in the light of Venus.

I'll certainly be out there watching it tonight-------

There IS something very very spectacular about the moon at the moment, and the stars seem more intense as well


Are others seeing Jupiter clearly also ??
That is mega-bright.

I took the dog out at about 2am this morning before going to bed. Couldn't believe it - the garden was almost floodlit.

Since I work the night shift in a hospital, I got to witness first hand all the "full moon crazies" crawl out of the woodwork. Unfortunately, the only full moon I saw last night was the one my patient showed me when he crawled out of bed (gown open in back, of course), screaming, "Help me...help me." When I asked him what he needed help with, he quickly replied, "I can't find the golf course." I'm so glad to have tonight off, so I can gaze at that beautiful moon from the safety of my own home. Thanks for the reminder, Jar11.

Oh my God... please, say you are joking!

Not even humans can be THAT batty... Can they?
(OK, never mind that.)

Well, anyway, I am glad this particular "party" is off for the time being being...
Phew!

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.

Is there a special reason to watch the moon tonight? Cause I'll do it if you say so.

Love Neil Young!

The moon is indeed big, bright and beautiful tonight. I'm inclined to howl a little. Or perhaps a lot.

Yeah been keeping an eye on it all summer, it's been a real treat. Should, I think, be clear up until christmas.

sfunny..I thought I'd a quick search to see if anything unusual was going on with our moon as it is exceptionally bright tonight (0:28 in Jockland)

It's hard to look directly at and takes a lot longer to adjust and see the familiar patterns quite beautiful though, there's almost enough light for me to walk around in my back garden and not stand in any dog turds (almost:@@

I patiently wait for my gypsy like witch to visit my home on these two occasions each month (& three times in December, the 2nd, 16th, & 31st)

Yeah it was bright and beautiful here as well. Took some great photos and some video as well.

It's good to stop in our pursuit of happiness sometimes and just be happy.
