The total eclipse is the big daddy of Luna shows
The stadium superconcert
All the wow factor
At Cape Byron, the Eastern most point of Australia
Sunset played the support act
Warming up the crowd
Luna finally emerged staying a little coy
Using the Cape Byron Lighthouse to tease the audience
Peaking cheekily around the stone edifice
Soon, though, the show warmed up Luna out on full show casting beams of gold and silver across the sea.
Dancing with her band the clouds
Then in the second set the magic started
The amazing disappearing act
The giant white orb shrinking away to a tiny orange sliver
To the eye no bigger than a star
Only to re emerge in a new red costume
With an edge of silver bling
What a show
The wind was cold on the Cape so I missed the final act of return to silver.
I sailed the coasts before the days of GPS
The light of the moon and the coded flashes of lighthouse welcome companions
Like a brother and sister guiding the night sailor.
But now I’m not on a yacht but on the Steinbock again, my BMW adventure bike
I’m on the Eastern most point of Australia, heading north then West and later this year will be at the continents Western Point
Traversing the Savannah Way right across topical Australia
Thanks Luna for your blessings and for a great show to start the new adventure.

Nice shots! Quite a night adventure my friend! 🌒🌚🌔🌕🌗🌘
Thanks Kym, it was a beautiful late Autumn night here
Oh you’re welcome. That was a spectacular view. Take care. Cheers! 📸
Beautiful shots, thank you
Thanks Tim for the comment
Great shots Mic! We saw it but not as clearly as you! Lucky you’re away and escaping the lockdown! Did I read correctly that you’re away until the end of the year? Was thinking of organising a catch up . Cheers Pauline xx
Yes Pauline probably won’t be back in Melb till October. By the time I go right around the West Coast
God speed Mick
Thank you, it was a great show.
