Hide and seek with a blue moon

Last night as the setting sun was painting the broken clouds above Lake Okanagan, the waxing moon was using them to hide as it rose.  The colours in the evening sky were beautiful pastels and the bright lunar surface stood in sharp contrast.

This blue moon will be full on August 31st so these images are of the moon in its gibbous waxing phase.

 

I’ll be watching again tonight to see if our earth’s satellite has any more tricks planned.
