Smoke-hazed full Moon Rising
On Thursday evening (1st October) the first Full Moon of October was observed rising through smoke haze over Cecil Kop Nature Reserve (the second Full Moon will be on the 31st). The haze was so thick that the Moon was very dim and magenta in colour as it became visible a short distance above the horizon but quickly turned brighter red, orange and yellow as it climbed higher in the sky.
