On our first car trip out for some time, we drove to Maleny to stock up on school stationery, groceries and visit the library as well as the icecream shop. The day was hot right from the word go and castellanus clouds were promising to build into cumulunimbus sooner rather than later.

There were signs of scarring on hillsides where landslides had taken place, some dangerously close to buildings and Baroon Pocket Dam had changed it’s colour to a muddy brown, full to the brim.

The expected thunderstorm reached us in the afternoon, hardly interrupting the kids water play.


We had high hopes for tonight’s eclipse after yesterday’s clear moon rise, but the clouds gathered throughout the day until, by evening, the horizon was hidden in the mist again.

Still hopeful for a break to appear, we wandered down to the Eastern lookout to get a glimpse of the lunar eclipse as the moon rose at 6:41pm out of the ocean – but it was not to be. We waited until after 7pm but all we could see was a glow behind the clouds were the moon must have been.

The solstice eclipsed by clouds.

At least the rain held off for today.
