Great result. I always find the moonbounce remarkable to hear/see! (Grant, moonbounce is the term given to radio emissions that are emitted from the earth and reflected back from the moon. The Graves radar is so strong that when the moon passes through it’s beam the signal gets reflected back. If you’re running a meteor monitoring system you can see the echoes as a trace on the display. These reflections also changes frequency vary slowly over time, that is doppler shift, showing the motion of the moon about the Earth!)

It was solid clouds here also. The very high pressure may have settled the weather but the stratocumulus associated with such weather never broke up.

Ive attached a couple of traces from the peak showing the many reflections I got.

Very active for several hours.
