The Sky said, "Cheese!"

All across Australia we had the heavens smiling down on us!

It is a rare occurance that has had many amateur photographers (like me) snapping away at the night, tonight.

I hate to say it, but it is not seen like this all throughout the world, in the States for instance, it will be seen inverted, with a frown!

That is so cool!!! Thanks for pointing it out. When I saw it I said I bet ours would be upside down and low and behold that is what it turns out it would be. Unfortunately we have a cloudy night tonight and I can't see anything here.

We caught just a little bit of it last night. I brought out my astronomy loving son but he only saw the stars, not the moon. He was very happy to see your picture when I showed him this morning! Thank you!

Unfortunately, is was cloudy here in Florida last night..and we didn't get to see our frown.
Somehow, a frown seems appropriate right now in this country.

But, your picture is AWESOME. What until I show my husband! For one thing, he has a particular attachment to Australia and New Zealand....he has been to both countries.

I am so glad you got a photo of it Anne. Steve saw it and didn't call me out.

The moon was frowning at us over here...I had never thought about the fact that it would be different until you pointed that out..awesome!
It was a beautiful site to behold.
