Post-Earthquake Moonset This Morning From Malibu and the Conejo Valley


Suzy Demeter of Suzy Demeter Photography caught this "moonset" of last night's full moon from Malibu this morning, about 30 minutes after most of us were jolted awake by a 4.4 magnitude quake at 6:25 a.m. The moon did not feel the quake. I asked him. But the rest of us sure did! The quake was centered somewhere between Encino and Westwood in the Santa Monica Mountains. Kind of a rude awakening to St. Paddy's Day and 20 year, 2 month (to the day) anniversary of the Northridge earthquake of 1994.


That full moon was shining bright up here in the Conejo Valley too, dodging around the early morning fog that soon burned off as we said our final goodbyes.
