... the bad moon arising ...
First lines of CCR's famous song.
Though 'good' and 'bad' are pure human concepts, they don't apply to anything there is in nature in our universe. The moon just 'is'.
And it's beautiful (also a human concept...)
These were taken from Brooklyn, Wellington, Friday 29/01/2021.
The first one at 09.11 PM, the second one some 20 minutes later.
Though the first one looks like early evening, it's actually dark already. Still light enough to capture the colors in the landscape, but dark enough for the city lights coming on, and even illuminating the clouds from below.
The second one was fully dark, the moon still rising and just breaking through the clouds. The low angle of the moon causing orange light (same effect as with sunrise/set).
I have to say, it was really windy, and my camera and tripod were blown off balance several times.
