Full moon

We were treated to a beautiful sunset yesterday.   A cold front is moving in from Canada, and so in spite of the fact that we are enjoying rather lovely weather, the upper atmosphere is full of ice crystals.   So there was a sun pillar as the sun set.


I turned 180° and caught the moon coming up through the plum trees at the back of the lot.   She was about three hours past full.


After I admired her enough, I turned around and found the sunset had developed further.   One of the clouds started to emit moisture, but the upper level winds caught the rain and blew it into interesting zigzags.  These showers that do not reach the ground are called virga, but I’ve never seen them blown into patterns like this before.
