Sky Watch Friday

On the Hebrew lunar calendar Passover Eve is always on the night of the full moon, on the 14th of the month of Nissan. Tomorrow night when the Sabbath ends, Pesach begins.
Here the moon is rising over Jerusalem, as seen from my place in the Jerusalem Hills.
Shabbat shalom to all Sky Watchers!
