Last night was a full moon so I decided to take the opportunity of a clear night to get some shots of it and it experiment with various settings on my camera.
After a few trial and error shots where I got some let me say interesting 'formations' of the moon I struck on pretty much the right one.
The moon looked pretty good in all her glory.
What I realised though when I was looking at the last photo in the series was a red dot near the moon. I went back to some earlier shots and sure enough it was on them as well, just further away.
So although this is a pretty poor picture of the moon, you can see the red dot on the top left hand corner of the shot between the moon and the shot, pretty much in a straight diagonal line.
Now it is closer, slightly lower down
Closer still! This being the last photo I took, the red dot is almost half way down the left hand side of the photo and moon.
I wonder what it was? Fascinating - I would never have known if I hadn't taken these photos.
