Travelling by bus from Ottawa to the Diefenbunker, I noticed the Quarter Moon high in the sky. I couldn’t make out any details other than the fact it was a 1/4 Moon.

I took out my binoculars and attempted to look at the terminator. Despite the image stabilization feature of the binoculars, the bus bounced too much to get a good look. There was no time to look at the Moon when we arrived and when we came out of the Diefenbunker it had clouded over. No Ottawa Star Party at the Ottawa GA.
