The waning Wolf Moon - about to descend behind Russian Hill in San Francisco. Taken from where Telegraph Hill Boulevard warps its way up toward Coit Tower.

ATTENTION fellow AM3'ers who love to chase the sun and moon:
This is the perfect image to turn you all on to the most amazing tool I've seen for those of us that chase the sun and moon: Stephen Trainor's "The Photographer's Ephemeris"
This software was developed to work with Google terrain maps and is beautiful to behold. Put simply - it allows the user to see where sunrise, sunset, moonrise, and moonset will occur anywhere on earth on any date. It also allows you to calculate the sun and moon location and distance above the horizon at any given time and place.
And - it is free!
A donation is requested. See if it works for you and if you use it I urge you to send some bucks his way.
This link will show you what you'll need and how to download the program:
It also has links to two short YouTube videos on using the program. There is also printed instructions for those who prefer reading.
I shot today's image using this tool to determine where to be and when to be there. It is a beautiful program. Enjoy.
