✳︎ September 2: Full Moon [Corn Moon] • 05:23 UTC
✳︎ September 11: Neptune at Opposition. The blue giant will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year making it the best time to view and photograph all night long. Due to its extreme distance from Earth, it will only appear as a tiny blue dot .
✳︎ September 17: New Moon • 11:00 UTC
✳︎ September 22: September Equinox • 3:30 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.

Exactly right, Rebecca! I couldn’t agree more! 🙂
This is so beautiful 😍! You are a wonderful artist , so gifted! The music is lovely too. Happy September! It used to be a favorite month. It’s hot here too. xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Mine too! I love September… there’s something somber but also sweet about this month. Returning from holidays, not quite ready to go back to work etc… 😉 But yes, this year for most people wasn’t that. I hope we cool down a bit [10 degrees would be fine to be precise! 😉 We climbed up to 41 today!]
Thank you so much, my sweet friend.
A happy and beautiful month, may it be.
Everything is different this year. Hoping for better days soon. Quick, catch these , they’re sailing by! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️🥰
got’em!!!!!!!! …only ‘steam’ I could find was these: 🚂💨
❣️❤️❣️ Hearts with feeling!!
Oh… always! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo [those too!]
40 degrees C?! Nooooo 🙂 Hope that temp is not uncomfortable for you! Happy September to you also. Let’s hope it’s a good one 🙂 xx
As uncomfortable as it gets, but we’ve seen worse and it’s suppose to gradually cool down from tomorrow [cooling down means that we get 38 instead of 41! 😉 🤯 ]
Happy September, my friend!
Oboy, I love hot peppers!
and… I’ve already turned my (your) calendar page!
Prelude and Fugue was perfect! (now that I enjoy classic music!)
Enjoy a pepper month then!!!!!
…another page…. so fast….
Glad you enjoyed Shostakovich! He’s one of my fav classical [contemporary] composers!
We were marveling at the moon last night … almost full and with a pink glow surrounding it. Of course I didn’t have my phone with me. Beautiful piano. 🙂 Happy September … Yamas!
Thank you, my friend! I can imagine that moon… shame you couldn’t photograph it… but it’s in your mind, so… 😉
Happy September, Frank!
So lovely I also enjoy the rhythms of our seasons 🧡💛 have a joyful day Marina ~ hugs hedy
Oh, I know you do!!!! A joyful day and month to you, my dearest Hedy!!!! 🤗😘🤗
Waiting for the beautiful music to press, “post comment”.
September, full of the DamnVirgos in my life 😉 is also the start of my favourite season.
And my favourite number is 9, too.
Your photo is absolutely stunning. It took my breath away.
…a bit long huh?!
So, many birthdays ahead! Mom is one so I know what you mean! 🙄😬
Thank you! It’s a very distant view from our home by the sea.
Many many hugs!!!! 😘🤗
Nah… I love it.
I am surrounded by DamnVirgos. Two sisters, my dad was one, lots of friends, an ex-boyfriend and two bosses – both who fired me!
It has an ethereal feel to it.
Right back atcha! 😘🤗
Hey! Da hell? 😛
Happy September, Marina…turning the page together! I love the transitional feeling of autumn’s approach, and I love this watercolor 🙂 Time does fly, but we’re flying on its wings. Don’t look down or back, just straight ahead!
That is such a wonderful thing to say… I will look straight ahead while enjoying the flight! Thank you, my dear Mary Jo. I’m so happy and grateful for turning that page together! Have a beautiful month, my dearest friend. 🤗😘… many hugs your way.
