The first full moon after the vernal equinox

...determines the date of Easter Sunday.
These will enlarge if clicked.
Earlier in the evening of Wednesday I could get some of the moon's shadows.
Later, I couldn't, but the clouds formed a sign of the cross.
Clouds? or contrails?

Very nice moonfull post. I think those are contrails and the moon likes those too.

What a beautiful moon in the first photo. I'd forgotten that the moon- determines Easter's date. The cross shot is fantastic, too.
