4. That may be true...Also true is that moonlight is softer and casts softer shadows.

Sunlight can glare.

7. HERES MORE...

The moon will glow a scarlet color during this year's first total lunar eclipse on Sunday -- a stark contrast to its ordinarily milky white sheen.
A partial eclipse will begin at 10:27 p.m. EDT Sunday, with the total lunar eclipse starting at 11:29 p.m. EDT The total eclipse will end at 12:53 a.m. EDT Monday, and the partial eclipse will end at 1:55 a.m. EDT Monday.
When the sun's rays reflecting off the moon reach the Earth, much of the blue and green light is scattered, while the orange and red colors remain visible, which is why the moon turns a reddish hue and is often referred to as the "blood moon."
In addition this full moon will be at “perigee” (the moon’s closest approach to earth each month.) The full moon closely coincides with perigee several times each year. When that happens, in the language of popular culture, we have a SUPPER MOON.

8. Thanks for all the info, my dear Jack-o-Lantern! Very thoughtful of you.

I am looking forward to seeing it, and, of course, getting some cool photos of it!

BTW, you might want to revise your SUPPER to SUPER!

17. Thank you, my dear Grumpy! I just hope I can get some.

The clouds keep coming and going...it's frustrating!

But at least I can do it from home. My balcony off my study should work.

Fingers crossed!

18. Wonderful pix!

Nice sharp pictures! So, it's 8:20pm Sunday and totality starts in about ten minutes. The moon is just rising over the treetops here and it is huge! Hopefully we'll all be able to get some great shots.
