Mild and Cloudy Super Moon Day

Monday was mild and cloudy although we didn't get any rain apart from a sprinkling in the early hours of the morning.
Temperatures Records for 08-14 November 2016
Monday turned out to easily be our mildest day of the month reaching 14.1°C (57.4°F). Our temperatures have been steadily increasing since our cold and snowy day last Wednesday.

We were on the lookout for Monday's super moon when the moon is "only" 221,524 (356,509km) miles away from earth. It won't be so close again until 25 November 2034. However, each time we looked out of the window the stuff we could see in the sky was cloud. Then around midnight we spotted the moon almost by accident as we had a final look of the night out of the window.
It really needed a tripod but that wasn't going to happen at midnight.
