In the late afternoon yesterday the moon was very bright as the sun’s last rays played on its surface. Lots of detail.
Mid August Moon
The Moon today is in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moon’s illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with a illumination of 50%.
A moon shot from this last Saturday. We have had forest fires to the extreem in B.C. All over the Province is in a state of emergency. The lower mainland, where we are, is suffering the result in extremely poor air quality from the smoke.
