Beautiful October Sunrise in Moncton

I have been enjoying the 15 minute walk to a spot I can watch the sunrise. I spend about an hour from the time I leave home. Some days I turn around and walk back because the clouds beat the sun to the horizon.

Today was a day that looked like it was going to be one of those days. I started the day by getting a photo of the moon at just after 5am and the sky was clear. By the time I started for the sunrise at 7:28 it had started to cloud over from straight above me all the way to the west but the wind was really making them move.

By the time I reached the bridge I watch the sun come on from the clouds were almost to the east horizon. I could see the horizon turn red but the sun still had almost 10 minutes before it would make an appearance.

I looked to the south where the Petitcodiac river is to see if it was foggy like it was yesterday when I was down there watching surfers on the tidal bore. I could see the bank of fog and it was lit up red like the sky. Very cool.

Hard to see but there was a red glow all along the top of the fog which looked very cool.

By the time the sun peek over the trees the clouds were almost to the horizon as you can see in the photo below. It was beautiful even the sun was disappearing into the clouds after only a few minutes. Still so worth getting up for.sunrise over university
