Pink Sky In Airdrie

Pink Sky In Airdrie

 

We were just about to go into a restaurant for dinner when I looked up. The sunset sky had turned pink. I went back to the car and grabbed my handy point and shoot to grab a quick shot. The half moon was a nice inclusion.

As the sky darkens and the harvest moon rises higher, the farmer works on into the night, racing against time to bring his crops in.

Before Moonset, Yaki Point

Before Moonset, Yaki Point

 

In order for the moon to be full, it must be on the opposite side of the earth from the sun. So, moonrise happens at sunset and moonset happens at sunrise. Two days after the full moon the moon is still in the sky when the sun is up. The sun is up high enough to reach into the canyon but hasn’t reached the Colorado River at the bottom of the gorge.
