On January 23, 2016, the shadows were getting longer as I joined a group climbing the 92 steps that lead to the top of the St. George Island Lighthouse. Once each month, the rising of the full moon and the setting of the sun occur within minutes of each other. Tonight was the night and the top of the lighthouse was a great place to see and photograph this event. I tried doing this last year but the sky was completely covered with clouds so we couldn’t see either the sun setting or the moon rising. This year the weather was perfect. The sky was totally clear except for a few clouds on the western horizon.
