Another Full Moonset

January 9, 2012, 7:41AM

How lucky I was to have two consecutive moon sets in clear skies and mild weather, in December and January, one of the grayest months on a calendar. And, again, the Moon didn’t disappoint me and neither did sunrise that was happening at the same time. When Moon was close to horizon it took on uncharacteristically yellow hue; last month it was reddish. When I turned around 180 degrees the Sun was still below horizon and the sky was flaming red and orange and as I turned back toward Moon the sky turned bright blue. Quite a show! Next full Moonset in the morning will be on February 7th at 7am. Who knows what that day will bring?
