Each full moon is gorgeous in its own right, but tonight’s is quite a stunner.

(A pretty sketchy photo taken on my phone, no filters, just a bit of brightness and contrast editing.)

Pretty spooky huh?

Tonight’s moon is actually in its first quarter phase – waxing gibbous, with the moon showing off 99% of its beautiful self. The official date for the August full moon (otherwise known as The Sturgeon Moon)┬áis tomorrow – Thursday 18th August 2016 at 10:27am (GMT), but it’s still utterly gorgeous!

With a whole new batch of my Pheeple monsters on the way and Halloween and Autumn around the corner, this moon’s appearance tonight is perfect.
