Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Moon on his Wings

Sue Ion sent us this wonderful Wow Moment photo of Brian returning from a flight in the early evening, while the moon was already hung in the sky.

We think it is truly beautiful.

And it's a great way to illustrate whether a moon is waxing. Or waning.

Connect the tips of the moon's silhouette (in this case it's very easy, because there is already a lovely straight line there). Extend that line.

It will produce either a small-caps letter "p"  or a "d".  In this case, it will obviously create the letter P.  

P stands for Premier. D stands for Denier.  So, first and last... so if it is the letter P, the moon is in the beginning of the phase, the first phase, and is waxing full.  If it's the letter D, it is past its full moon and is waning.

Either way, Brian has the best of it, being in the sky with that gorgeous moon alongside!  Thanks for Sharing this Sue and Jim!
