Saturday Morning’s Full Moon
Christy Juckett writes-
After reading GMG this morning and Paul’s note about an eclipse, I ran out with my camera and got shots from Niles Beach. The sliver was due to clouds and not the eclipse – this is what Wiki said: "The eclipse will occur Saturday morning, before sunrise over North America, and the moon will set before the eclipse is completed. Only Alaska and northern most Canada will be able to witness the entire event."
The graininess is from low-light & an old camera – no photoshop here!
