      I thought I may post this item for your perusal and information.

      13th October saw the UK having a full Moon.

      The article contained in the link below, courtesy, BBC’s Weather Watchers, depict photos taken by Weather Watcher members of the full Moon.

      Nice photos to enjoy.  Here they are:-

      Now, a bit of folklore which I find holds very true.  The saying is:-

      “Halo near, rain near.  Halo far, rain far.”

      This holds well and good and has rarely let me down.  Try it next time you observe the Moon and cloud halo.

      Talking of which about the Moon – next year, 2020.

      In October on the 1st and 31st a full Moon occurs on each night.  Blue Moon.

      Want to see an image of a Blue Moon?

      Here it is:-
