Sunrise around 7:01AM on Saturday morning. Moonset just two minutes earlier at 6:59AM. That’s a full moon. But when the moon is setting the earth’s shadow will be creeping out onto the disk of the moon before it sets. Cool photo to shoot if you get in the right spot. Camp out at Capt Joe’s Dock over to Rocky Neck and the City Hall Tower will be battling with that setting moon. Get there early for that shot. Or over on Light House Beach in Annisquam all the way up to Halibut Point for a shot right on the water of this big moon setting.
Forecast is clear and cool. Go get that photo of the last lunar eclipse of 2011. As you take the photo, realize that people from Colorado to California are going to see a full lunar eclipse since the sun won’t set on them for a few more hours. But you gotta get out of the sack to see anything.
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain
