UC Moon

Sometimes when you fly at night, you see moon. The night after full moon (and eclipse), we flew around the airport and thrilled to scenes like this we’ve not enjoyed since our last full moon flight.

The stadium lights blaring at the left contrast with gentle shimmers on the water and twinkling lights of many colors. Passing offshore of UCSB, the campus so familiar in daylight seemed mysterious though everyone familiar can find landmarks like Storke Tower and figure out where they are.

From a different angle we looked past Goleta to the lights of distant Santa Barbara adding a pleasant glow to the haze and fog forming there.
