Out of the blue

My Spanish relatives, who just flew home today, were amused at how excited we get at sunsets - and, especially, that my father and I leap to take pictures of them. Why do we? Hard to say. Perhaps if they'd seen tonight's, which offered pleasures to southwest, west, northwest- and above! - they'd understand. It was completed (as grace completes nature!) by the sudden appearance of the new moon. Earthshine
(which we've seen before on this blog) made it a perfect ring.
