Peak District Super Moon
21st March 2011 · No Comments
This weekend, we were treated to the wonderful sight of the moon, closer to Earth than at any time in the last 20 years, floating over Ecton Hill.
A few drifting clouds added to the atmosphere and it was actually warm enough to be able to stay outdoors for more than a few minutes!
The first floor living room in the Barn is always swathed in light as the sun rises over Ecton but this moon rise was something else – it was a pity there were no guests this week to enjoy it.
We are blessed with very low light pollution here in our part of the Peak District, so any of you who are astronomy fans would be well advised to bring your telescope with you – the Milky Way is always bright here on a clear night.
