Lunation 195: The 21-Day-Old Moon
A cool morning after the rains; the grass and fallen leaves are still
damp and as dawn approaches I can make out Luna through the racing
clouds. It will be mid-morning before the skies clear sufficiently to
try imaging the Last Quarter (21-day-old) Moon, and I'll not be viewing
the ongoing dance of Venus, Mars and Jupiter today due the solid
overcast to the east.
The forecast for tonight, however, is looking very nice!
