A starry night in the Amazon – I never expected a clear night like this!

The moon will be full in 2 days – the 10th, which in fact is the date of the lunar eclipse. Not visible from South America, but being in such a strong moolight in this wonderful location with all the nocturnal sounds is just incredible!

The light from the moon was so strong that the otherwise incessant frogs were more cautious this night – sounding a bit like during dusk and dawn.

The location of the buildings is incredibly positioned due east! You will enjoy the moon and the sun rise above the Anangucocha lake. This day was particularly wonderful as I experienced both! As the lunar eclipse was only 2 days away I saw the moon low in the east as the sun was setting in the west.
