Go see for yourself! Beautiful moon over West Seattle

Seldom will you hear us say “get away from the keyboard! now!” but this is one such time. If you have any view of the western sky, go see this beautiful moon for yourself. In case you can’t – or even if you can – Jason Gift Enevoldsen has shared a photo.

(P.S. You can always check the moon phases, moonset/moonrise/sunset/sunrise times, tides, and more, on the WSB West Seattle Weather page.)

    Fabulous picture! Thank you for sharing and reminding us to go look outside.

    It doesn’t effect the beauty of the picture, but the photo is flipped. This is a few hours after sunset, so the sun is below the horizon. From our viewpoint, it should look like the sun is shining upward onto the moon.

    Thank you!

    It was taken with a Nikon D800 and a small telescope.

    Sharp eyes, spotting the orientation difference! Due to the telescope, it is actually flipped in both horizontal and vertical, and on top of that the camera was rotated about 90 degrees to avoid hitting the tripod.

Sorry, comment time is over.
