Another Eastern Sunset

Again, a week ago, we had one of those eastern sunsets, when the sun had disappeared behind the hill to the west of our house, but was still shining on the clouds south and east of us.  Surprisingly bright colours this time.

It was just after 9 p.m.  This is the view to the east.

And this looks more to the south.  Spot the moon?

Here it is!

I hope that at the new house we will get some real sunsets, with a view to the northwest.  But we won't have the eastern view for sunrises - or these unusual 'eastern sunsets'.

I went out later on to check out the moon again, and spotted a planet right beside it (what astronomers would call a conjunction).  Turns out this is Jupiter.

  2. I can never figure out why Jupiter moves around and ends up near the moon often times. Your sky colors are outstanding.

  7. Who would have thought, eh? Eastern sunsets happen often around here. I love them almost as much as the western ones. I'll try and provide some sunrises for you after you move. :)
