2015-12-07 - Occultation Morning

~7.5 miles @ ~12.0 min/mi

"Earthshine!" Kristin and Kerry and I observe an ashen glow on the dark side of the waning moon. "Light from the sun hits the earth, goes to the moon, and bounces back into your eye!"

It's an awesome quiet morning. Brilliant Venus glitters like a diamond on the tip of an arrowhead, crescent Luna a silver bow drawn back ready to shoot. In a few hours: an occultation as one eclipses the other. Meanwhile on the trail friends run together toward the sunrise.
