The Moon right now is very bright, even through clouds.  Later in the evening, when the cloud cover broke, we were in (near) full moonlight, with discrete, visible shadows all around.  It will be like this for the next few nights, clouds permitting.

I meant to take a few pictures with slightly less exposure, but oh well.  I’ll entitle my little masterpiece, “Second Sun."
