As a surprise event Rev A Slade took a few of the faithful to the Salceuu!d (the pinnacles) to witness the full moon and the sun in the sky at the same time. This is a very rare sight and can only be seen from a great height. The Salceuu!d is 759 meters above sea level and takes 4 hours to walk to.
The Reverend took this panoramic photo (unfortunately only 2D) which pans from south to west to north and east. Click on the picture to enlarge. Because of the scope of the photo the moon seems small. It is under the large cloud to the left of the nearby rock which actually the top of the Salceuu!p.
They stayed in a hut nearby and at dawn the faithful ascended again hoping to see the opposite – the moon setting as the sun rose. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see anything.
For the month of August all the Moon Days are on Wednesdays. Today is the first with a Noon No Moon lunch. Next week is the G Moon (First Quarter) dinner. Then there is a the O Moon (Full Moon) Drumming peaking at midnight. Finally is the D Moon (Last Quarter) breakfast. These meetings and meals take place when the moon is at the zenith, right above us.
