A Stitch in Time: Summer solstice
4 Attachment(s)
This year the full moon of the summer solstice coincided with a lunar eclipse. The first three of these pics were taken looking north-east from my front yard and the fourth from the backyard (had to clear the tall tree in the neighbour's front yard).

#1 the golden hour (6:37 pm Eastern Standard Time - real time, not daylight saving)

#2 reflected sunset (6:56 pm)

#3 moon rise & eclipse (7:39 pm - later than it should have been because of the heavier cloud on the horizon)

#4 full moon (8:11 pm - after it cleared the neighbour's tree)
Attachment 168158

Hope this qualifies as meeting the challenge.
