Moon Holding Water

The moon is 'holding' water...which is supposed to mean rain within the next few days.

If the moon were 'pouring' water, that means it will rain very soon.

Venus is also in the photo.

Nice picture! I never heard that expression before...Moon holding water. It must really be true because we got about an inch and half of rain yesterday and more to come today.

You did it again. I was hoping when I saw this that you would get a picture of it. You did an excellent shot this time. We had a thunderstorm this morning.

In this photo also, the moon is 'following' the sun setting.

REMEMBER: The rounded part of the moon is always the side where the sun is shining on it. If the rounded side is to one side as it sets, that is the direction where the sun is at.

Thats the one. The first moon I saw was half full at the bottom. Two nights later it was half full at the top. After that it was full.

You must have seen it at different times of the day for it to do that, such as just after dark, then just before dawn.

The moon increases from 'no'(new) moon to full moon in two weeks, then it goes back to 'no' moon in two weeks. So, each night starting at new moon, the moon gets increasingly larger until it's full moon in two weeks, then it gets decreasingly smaller each night for two weeks when it disappears or becomes a 'new' moon.
