Is it possible to ski after class, when class ends at 4:50 and it's January?

Yes, with some help from the moon.

May you spoon under the moon.

And, yes, we do love Althouse - our home away from home.

PS Gorgeous photo. Very haunting.

My husband and I love to night ski. It is so other-worldly, as you caught it with your photo.

The moon is lovely tonight.

Isn't it cool that we can enjoy the same moon?

That's no moon. It's a space station!

Mull sublunary lover's love--whose skis are not cloudy...

You need to upgrade your camera.

"You need to upgrade your camera."

I just had my iPhone today. That's iPhone stuff.

Beautiful pic. I think they call this the "wolf moon".

This picture makes me homesick. Back home, a half-hour drive up the mountain, you'd be skiing down wide open terrain, high above the town, skies crystal clear--so clear you could see the milky way ribbon. It was enchanting, especially during a meteor shower.

Night skiing is magical. And possibly the most fun I've had on the slopes.

Full moons are wonders to behold, especially after watching the NASA series on PBS. Why is the Moon so luminous? I have heard that it's surface is made of extraordinarily reflective materials.

Beautiful photo which inclined me to think of much.

Very nice, thank you.

I almost had to put on my sunglasses, driving home into the moonrise yesterday.
