I just looked and it's purple, not sure what's up? I looked out the window and it is the usual light pollution here.

I managed to save it though. I put it up as my avatar since that is my easiest way to share a picture here.

I suspect there was some sort of local light doing it but it might have been something to do with sunrise.

I was just wondering what caused the sky to do that there. Also I am close enough it maybe should have been doing that here. I was not about to go out in a bath robe to check though. Maybe I missed it. Kind of glad I saved the image.
Wednessday is going to be kind of a triple lunar event.

I also don't understand how you proved it won't be the second full moon of the month simply by not liking what some are calling it.
The term supermoon is astrological in origin, and has no precise astronomical definition.

One problem with that, is if I start calling the second full moon of January something different from everyone else, I can't google things about it anymore.

I noticed when I came home the sky was clear. It was too cold out for me to hang around but I did pause in the yard to take a look.
Forgot to update this blog but just noticed JP4 was about so that reminded me.
