Moon of the Strong Cold and Full Moon this week

This coming Wednesday is the full moon, and both Tuesday and Wednesday evening should provide great opportunities for photographing or viewing the moonrise of a full moon near the time of sunset. Wednesday morning should also provide a good view of moonset/sunrise. There isn’t much consensus on the names for March’s full moon, with names […]

Luckily, everything worked as planned and I was able to create photographs […]
