Lucy woke me early this morning with a touch on the shoulder and a whispered invitation to come outside and enjoy the Moonlight. How could I refuse?! (I love it--and her--when she does that...)
This is the 16-Day-Old Moon, a waning Gibbous disk just two days after the glory of the Full phase. We missed that aspect of Luna's cycle due to a spell of wet weather but now skies are clearing to reveal a Lunar face past it's prime, steadily decreasing in brilliance and illuminated surface as it declines toward New phase.
But stay tuned as this show is far from over!
