    The reason?? Burning season in Sumatra and the SW Monsoon.

      The half-moon and Singapore Flyer:


      Not read this time as the pollution from the burning in Sumatra was not heavy that night.

        And according to this "moon-map", I also got a few of the landing sites of the Apollo program on the lunar surface as well: http://www.spittalschool.org.uk/Pages/Astronomy3.html

          We had a full moon again a couple of days ago, and I figured it was time to open the night shot season.
          To get images of the moon like Jan-Olavs here, I would have to crop heavy, as I only have a 135mm lense, but anyway...., here's my first moon-pictures of autumn 2015

              The last full moon got stuck in the trees at Borgundgavelen:








              Somebody must have taken pity and cut it loose, because it actually did get up into the sky later:
