This week was full of skywatching as the weather was bored and was trying to let us focus or something like that.
It started on Monday. The night fell and while I was walking home (I visited a friend of mine), I saw the most unusual moon I´d ever seen. It was huge and yellow, and looked like from the horror movie - just the thin black cloud was crossing it. I could almost hear the werewolf´s howl. The moon was so weird that I rang to my sister to look at it.
Me: "Have you seen the moon tonight?"
My sister: "What?"
Me: "The moon!"
My sister: "Are you crazy? You are calling just because of the moon?"
Me: "Yes! Look outside!"
My sister: "Ok, ok. I will."
I was hurrying home, grabbed my camera, but the moon wasn´t neither so big nor so scary anymore. So I took no picture of it.
On Tuesday the weather was the nicest ever in the morning - the sun was shining, no wind, quite nice temperature. But about the noon the sky became one big dark grey cloud. It all happened so quickly I couldn´t almost noticed.
Then it started to snow. But it wasn´t the usual snow-falling as we know here. The snowflakes were about three centimetres big and became one big impervious wall of snow. The wind was so strong you couldn´t hide from it. And it was snowing and snowing and snowing. And I didn´t have my camera with me. So no pictures again.
On Wednesday the snow started to melt. And today, the sun was shining again, again there was a wonderful temperature, and there are almost no signs of snow after all. Tricky weather.
So I´ve decided to post a photo I took last Friday while walking with Smallone home (see the last post).
It was cold but sunny. A beautiful winter day. The sun in winter makes so different light from the summer one.The photo is not edited at all. Just straight from the camera.
