Well, when you live with a family member who is into Astrophotography you do these things :-)
He didn't use the telescope this time but had the Nikon Coolpix P600 ready to take photos when and if the clouds parted as it is the best of the four cameras in this household for zooming in....
...and part they did! So the photography session began. When this photo was uploaded to the computer I felt like it was time for the Star Wars theme to start up. Ha ha!
Time to zoom in....
...oops! Too much zoom!
Hmmm, that's about right! Okay super moon, see you again in 2034. Hang on, I may not be around then and if I am I doubt I will be hanging out in the back yard waiting for the clouds to part.
Back on earth once again...I have some readers who like to be reminded about the annual Bush Christmas Exhibition which showcases handmade work done by our talented artisans who live in remote and rural areas of Australia. Their work is on sale and there is a vast variety of goods available such as artworks, ceramics, garden art, jewellery, books and toys, homewares, textiles and so on. You can view some of the items for sale on their website.
The exhibition goes from 2-11 December from 9am to 6pm and will be held at 58 Neil Street Toowoomba next to the Empire Theatre. If you live in the region it really is worth while visiting and buying a gift or two which will help our country people who have done it tough these last few years while tackling the drought which still isn't over.
