SkyWatch Friday

Wengen Night Sky
This photo was taken in Wengen, a small Alpine village
in Switzerland in the Jungfrau region. This was very
early in the morning with the full moon still up.

  1. Really stunning picture from the high mountains of Switzerland. Love the moon going down. Superb!


  2. What a stunning shot! The colors, the mountains, the MOON! Wow! Quite impressive!

    I am new to the SkyWatch team, so my name isn't even listed there yet. However, I am "helping" already and just wanted to kindly remind you to please put a link back to the SkyWatch blog in your SkyWatch posts. (http://skyley.blogspot.com.)

    Thank you for contributing to SkyWatch. This one is definitely a worthy contribution!

  3. Wonderful photo. What ere you doing overnighting so high up? Glorious moonligt.

  4. Thanks for all your comments. This is my first entry to Skywatch and I hope I can participate every week. :o)

    We stayed in Wengen on our way to go up to the Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe). It takes more then 2 hrs to get to the top from Wengen and being that the weather up in the mountains can change so fast, we want to get a head start. If we stayed in Interlaken, we run the risk of the weather turning bad by the time we get to the top of the mountain. I hope it makes sense with my explanation. LOL Thanks.

  5. Nice photo!
    I have an award for you. Pls collect at my blog here

    Thanks Foong! This is my favorite photo I took in Wengen. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and saw the moonlight shining through the window. Then upon waking up early the next day, I saw this and am glad I took a picture.

  7. Very beautiful! Great Skywatch!
    Cheers, Klaus
