Beautiful start to the night

I knew the moon was to be full for this, but wow! On the drive home, I could see well enough probably to have made it easily without lights (although for safety's sake I didn't try). The brightness of the moon high overhead coupled with the bitter cold and ice particles in the atmosphere above must have done some weird synergistic thing. Everything was so visible, and the most amazing thing is that I had no shadow. So either the scattering was so pronounced that there was no edge discernable, or I've become a vampire.

Anyway, my candles are lit. This Imbolc, Groundhog's Day, would mark Dad's 63rd birthday. The days will start to get perceptibly longer now. I'm very glad of it. February is a very long month for being only 28 days.

mmmm. I love cold, still, bright winter nights.

But I'm ready for them to be shorter, too.

Moon dogs?
Did you see moon dogs? Or just a bright sky? We've seen sun dogs a couple of times this week, and they are just absolutely spectacular.

Re: Moon dogs?
Yes, I'm pretty sure there were. It was very bright to look at, and my glasses now make it hard to look straight up and keep everything in focus, but I'm sure there must have been if that scattering effect was so pronounced.
