    The moon is up equally during the day and night.

    The full moon is up only during the night. The new moon is up only during the day (but it’s invisible). The first and last quarter moons are up half the day and half the night.

    So it’s accurate to say bigger brighter moons are up more at night, but that doesn’t mean the moon is never up during the day: it often is.

    More tea, vicar ?


    It’s entirely possible to see a moon very much like that (allowing for Gilligan’s artistic licence) in the day sky soon after New Moon … it happened here last week.

    " Do dogs also howl at a lunar eclipse?".

    ALL Animals go crazy around a good lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse can only happen around a full moon, and if the moon has risen well, in clear skies, all the animals expect a full moon all night. Years ago, we had a perfect full moon from almost 10 PM until midnight, and I was in a neighborhood with many outside pets, cats and dogs mostly. The neighborhood had some wooded areas, a bayou and swampy land. All the nocturnal creatures were out, and most of the diurnal creatures were up with their owners to watch the eclipse, and their vision was good. When the eclipse began the owls went nuts because their light was dimming. About halfway into the eclipse, dogs starting barking, horses were restless and everything was making noise except the cats, who acted like they caused it.

    So, in a nutshell, yes, dogs bark at a full or nearly full lunar eclipse, but it seems they are barking at the nocturnal animals freaking out.
    You owls keep it down, decent folk are trying to sleep!
    Likewise, howling at a moon is a canid’s way of telling those squirrels, and owls and cats to turn that light out.

    I just like the way they are drinking out of cups at the table!

    Do they now have outdoor patio seating? The café itself is windowless.

    I’m in southern Arizona and saw it late yesterday afternoon while I was out walking my pooch. It was gorgeous.

    Civilized as opposed to a primitive discussion!

    When I was in the USAF, the Security Police had a ride-along program, where you could follow them for a shift to see what they do. I went along on a Friday night. It was a payday and the moon was full. The SP told me it should be a wild night with all these events coinciding, but it turned out to be the slowest, most boring car ride I ever was on.
