Full moon

The moon is full at just about midnight on the night of Saturday/Sunday this weekend.

According to National Geographic: “This month, the moon’s closest point to Earth will occur at 8 p.m. ET on October 16 (0:00 UT on October 17), when the full moon will be just 222,365 miles from our planet. The average distance between our two worlds is 238,855 miles.”

Saturday and Sunday evenings provide some stunning moon-watching, I should think.

The photos are from my garden on Saturday evening, after I stepped in dog doo whilst wearing my new slippers.
