Sunset - 8pm.

Here's the view from our front door a few minutes ago.  The clouds have respectfully parted to allow the crescent moon to have centre stage.

It looks especially nice in the lightbox (click image).

    1. How right you are Cro. I so wish NZ would put all their electricity underground. It's done in many new subdivisions. It is harder to find faults down there, however.

  2. "Late, late yestreen I saw the new Moon,
    With the old Moon in her arms;
    And I fear, I fear, my master dear!
    We shall have a deadly storm."
