Last Month’s Moon in MtLawleyShire – the Super Moon

This is very late – I completely forgot about it.  The so-called ‘super moon’ in June.

In Perth, it was a wild rainy day with wonderful clouds at sunset, but even before that, I met a friend for coffee in the city, the clouds were building:

cloud_2  cloud_3

cloud_4  perth_1

perth_4  perth_6

perth_5  perth_7

and a rainbow:

perth_3

Then it was back in MtLawleyShire and late afternoon:

cloud_1  cloud_5

cloud_7  cloud_6

cloud_9  cloud_8

cloud_10

Then it was sunset time:

cloud_12  sunset_6

clouds_2  sunset_3

The glow through the clouds was intensely ethereal

sunset_2  sunset_4

cloud_11  sunset_8

sunset_5  sunset_7

sunset_1

I then crossed the road to be in place for the moon, and when I looked back west:

clouds_1  cloud_13

But would the sky clear in time for the moon rise?

In short – no.

The clouds continued to be amazing – here is an apparition (one dark, one lighter) briefly in the night sky:

Finally, thorugh the clouds – the moon, although it was well past risen:

in cloud_3  in cloud_2

in cloud_1

almost clear:

& in the clear night sky:

tonight's full moon

 

 

So sorry I didn’t post this earlier.  I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
