Matty's Moon

G'day,
Birds are scarce, so here's another moon shot.


This phase is referred to as '90% waxing gibbous', which means about 90% of the left portion of the moon is visible and growing.

High five Matty,
Gouldiae.

  2. Hi Gouldiae
    Strangely your moon looks a lot like the one I was looking at late this afternoon.
    My moon didn't have any Monkey-sounding name, though!
    Cheers

  3. G'day Ros,
    Good one. He's going to grow up thinking nothing of the fact that pop can post him a picture on a computer screen. How far we've come!

    G'day Denis,
    Ah, we have something in common. Yeah, funny word eh? Gibbous - protuberant, humpbacked, or the lunar version, convex on both sides. The adverb gibbously would make a great 9 letter word puzzle, as in The Age.
    Regards,
    Gouldiae
