FULL COLD MOON

Location:  Front Porch, Little Lepreau, NB

Date Time:  December 13, 2016 @ 1900-2000 hrs

Weather:  Increasing clouds, slight breeze, -9 C with windchill of -16 C.

Equipment:  Canon Rebel Xsi and Nexus 4 cellphone camera attached to a Canadian Telescopes 80ED/APO f/6.25 with 12 mm eyepiece.

Attendance:  Myself.

Objective:  To view and image the Full Cold Moon which was suppose to rise on this evening.

Report:

  • Shortly after dark a thin layer of clouds covered the sky, but were see-through as far as the very bright full Moon went.  Cloud cover increased as evening went on.
  • Used a moon filter when visually observing.  Helped a great deal in cutting down glare which was relief to the eyeball.
  • Many bright, small impact zones were visible across the face of the Moon.
  • No shooting stars or satellites were seen.
