Pic(k) of the Week: Midtown crepuscule

Midtown crepuscule

After sunset on 22 December 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia, looking west toward Midtown from the city's Poncey-Highland neighborhood.

The Full Cold Moon had just begun its rise when I snapped this photo, but further to the southeast (out-of-frame, to the left). An hour later, I would see the moon in its full glory.

Full Cold Moon 2018

The day before this, the 2018 winter solstice had occurred. This rare, proximate syzygy (solstice plus full moon) will not be seen again until the winter of 2029.

  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of photos taken (or noted) by me, posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always (as is the case today), with a good fermentable as the subject.
  • This is the 52nd Pic(k) of the Week for 2018, and, thus, the year's last. The series begins anew next week,in 2019. Thanks for following along.
