: Tonights Moon

I was just outside putting the recyclables out and I couldn't help but notice how perfectly white the moon was. Not only bright but very white, like an HID.

I just thought it was unusual.

Yep, perfect full moon tonight.

It was on the news too. They called it a deer moon. Something to do with deer in velvet.

Indeed. I'm really tempted to go to the trail and do some night cycling. I'm just worried about being eaten by wolves.

Cold front went through yesterday PM, so the atmosphere was squeaky clean for this moon. You could read a book by its light at midnight - moonrise here was at 2008 (8:08 PM).

Great for night sailing!
