The moon's reflection is aimed directly at your fire pit, Peter. How wonderful is that? Love how you've kept all the surrounding area in black.
....peter:): Thank you very much Beverly.... for such a nice compliment....petersmile

I think you are mis-reading it, is clearly an Alien Close Encounter, and the Mothership has seen down an exploratory team to work out what is causing that adour that we locals know as frying bacon.
....peter:): LOL ....i love your imagination Ray ... there is a blue speck just to the right of the moon.... it could have been the Mothershipgrin....petersmile
What a great photo, Peter! Very dream-like... But it makes me want a toasted marshmallow! The reflection could be seen as smoke rising from the burnt sugar goop on the stick. (I assume Canadian campers burn their marshmallows just like us Yanks!)
....peter:): Hi Patrushka i am glad that you liked my photo...we Canuck's toast marshmallows the same as you Yanks.... but we go one step furthergrin ....we make S'mores out of them...that is two toasted marshmallows with a chocolate coated wafer between them and let the chocolate melt....that is why they a S'mores....because if you have always want some moregrin....petersmile

Amazing, that is some great picture, must have been magic light with the moon!
....peter:): Thank you very much Astrid...a fine compliment... it was a magic moment....i had to wait for the moon to get to just the right was worth the waitgrin....petersmile
It's an exclamation mark!
You surprised us again with your talent! smile
This night view is so crystal clear, I can even see two bright stars!

Can you spot them?
That's my question mark for you. wink
....peter:): This is likely biggest exclamation mark that you will ever see LC.
What a great compliment for you to be surprised....thanks.

Marion (Flash and Flare) was the first to noticed the closest star.

But there are two blue stars in this photo.
I don't know why they show up as blue.

One is at the top left corner almost out of the frame.
The other is much brighter at a 45° angle above and to the right of the moon.

I see that you paid attention and noticed them both.
I knew that they were there all along.
I had the advantage of having the original photosmile.
