|Description ||To watch the near full moon very close to its MMaSMSS setting at the Kirksanton standing stones I had to wait until the 19th July 2005 at 1.30am, when the very important alignment occurred. The moon when viewed from the cupmark on the eastern stone was seen touching the northern edge of the western stone at the same time as it touched the sea. It was very difficult to take this photo as my old film camera only has a horizontal viewfinder and the ground was very wet so I had to squat with my head as near the cupmark as possible and click. Unfortunately I must have wobbled a bit as two out of the three photos failed, missing the moon completely and then the usual cloud spoilt things. The resulting photo here is quite poor as the cloud has discoloured the moon, with the lower light being the reflection off the sea, but nevertheless it demonstrates this wonderful alignment. |
