Sizzling Summer Solstice Full Moon

SummerMoon1  

Is it getting hot in here or is just me?

 

Summer's fuse officially lit on June 20, 2016 (22:34 UTC), which sparked the beginning of a sweltering season. The Sun blazed above the equator, granting northern Earthlings the longest day of the year. But the sky was a little loony—an astronomically rare full Moon broke out of the cosmic asylum, which hasn't happened since 1967.

 

Keyfra Photography kept the sweat out of her eyes and photographed the Summer Solstice full Moon. This event won’t occur again until June 21, 2062! What? Didn’t get a chance to see it? Don’t worry. Go bribe a local vampire, and you may end up with a set of fangs in your neck. What? Do you know a better way to pass the decades? Please let me know.

  1. It’s not just you…here in the South we’re slowly roasting in the moist heat…hope we turn out tasty. 🙂
    That full moon was a sight to behold. I’m glad I didn’t have to step out in the daylight hours to see it.

  2. Vampires don’t like biting me anymore 😦 I don’t need them to see the next summer solstice since I’m already dead, but I sure miss vampire attention!

    What did the female vampire say when she saw the size of her date’s lateral incisors?

  3. What a handsome moon! I’m jealous of Keyfra’s beautiful lunar shots.

    On April 10th, I took several cell pics of the waxing moon with star Aldebaran while driving in my car. I didn’t send you any of the photographs, because they weren’t crystal clear. Are you familiar with star Aldebaran?

    • I’d like to see the images! Yes — I observed Aldebaran plenty of times throughout the years. Aldebaran and the Hyades star cluster are easy to spot with any binocular. If you own one, then take a peek at Aldebaran. The star will be low on the western horizon and sets relatively early this time of year. Or you can wait until winter arrives.

      • The images aren’t great, so I don’t know. I’ll send them to you but don’t get too excited. Yeah, Aldebaran on that day was huge. I have binoculars and will view the star when it’s visible. Thank you!

      • I’d like to see the photographs! They don’t need to be perfect. I assume Aldebaran was kind of low on the horizon, correct? There was probably a shit load of air between you and the star, which means Aldebaran could of been scintillating more than usual.

      • My photographs were emailed to you, and yes, they are very, very imperfect! Yay!! Aldebaran was so low, I thought it would collide with the moon. Scintillating and so titillating, as well, I wanted to grab that star 😀

  4. Yea, indeed, it was a stunning moon-rise on the longest day, I saw it on a Scottish Moor, rising above the tree line. got shot, but bit late now as I have only just return from stunning Scotland to the UK in turmoil. Well done again, Keyfra and you, Mr Fly
