Better view with the naked eye: My camera only managed to capture this crooked looking full moon…

 

This full moon had been building up over the last couple of days and because Cape Town has such clear air, the visibility of it is amazing.

From the dog park the views over Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Harbour are stunning. But yesterday night the moon outshone all of that: Huge and massive it rose over the Hottentots Holland Mountains, so close to earth, as if it was possible to pluck it from the sky.

Because of the angle of the moon to the earth, in South Africa it looks like a bunny sits in the crescent rather than the face of the ‘man in the moon’. The detail was incredible. Fat and round sat the moon like a big cheese looking down from heaven. The moonlight was so bright, it lit up the scenery in a silver shimmer.

The more astonished I was to see this wonderful full moon crooked by the time I showed it to my husband at home.

I blinked my eyes, and then some more, because there was something covering the moon.

The night sky was clear and the wind was still strong, so it couldn’t be a cloud.

It puzzled my brain: I knew we had a full moon, yet, I couldn’t see it because it was partially blocked, by what?

A quick Google search revealed that it was earth’s shadow, creating a partial lunar eclipse, visible from Cape Town at excellent conditions.
