If you are going to be away from light pollution for the Harvest Moon then Islay is better than London. I’m not sure which I like more – the bright fullness of the moon or the impenetrable thick blackness of the night sky.
The moon itself seemed to have stars within it.
Points in this post (copy and paste the co-ordinates into Google Earth):
- Harvest Moon from Islay: N 55° 47.710 W 006° 13.640
- Date of Visit: 9 September 2014
I love how you can see the profile of the craters on
the right side of the moon in the second picture!
Thanks Jill – it took a long time to get the detail right due to camera-shake!
