Default Moon, Jupiter and why it's important to understand tides!

Spent much of the day up in London today. Moon and Jupiter were
beckoning when I got home - not as nice a composition as Veijo's but
here it is anyway...

I wasn't sure where you were going with the quip on tides, but loved it when
I saw.

Nice Moon/Jupiter shot.

good one ! You'd think that someone from a sailing club would know the
tides.

On Christmas day the kids and I were on the gravel bit 7-8 metres
below those railings, feeding ducks. On the way back, my eldest was
asking why all the houses along the front there had steel gates with
rubber seals, and why the road back had a huge hump in it....

Nice to see a 4WD being used off-road for a change. (-:

Nice moons shot Pete.

The over exposed Jovian moons makes one realise just how dark the surface of
our moon is. Imagine how bright it would be if it was icy like Europa!
