Have any of your dogs or wild coyotes been howling at the moon in the last few days? It was surely bright, as the January moon not only kept the dogs up at night, but everyone else too (need good window coverage to block it out if you like total darkness to catch some zzz's).
My photo is taken on my phone (no filter), which was not too shabby and I liked it's composition. Moon not super clear, but its brightness does shine through some clouds passing by...
BSoleille! The bright side of howling at the moon!
