Winter solstice sunset & full-moonrise, Santa Fe, NM, USA

21 December 2018

Another good walk across town and up the little hill to watch the sunset and full-moonrise on winter solstice day! The actual full moon is the next morning, but it was already 99.5% illumated upon rising this evening. It was a fairly cloudy day though, but nice views anyway.

The sun setting in the west, behind some clouds.

A panoramic view of the last colors in the clouds (scroll right to see it all).

And meanwhile, the full moon was rising in the east, also behind some (thin) clouds.
