Frühmorgens Oster-Sonntag ging fast noch voller Mond hinter Kirche St. Michael in Inzell unter.
Am Tag davor, dem Oster-Samstag um 20:55 hatte der Mond seine maximale Phase erreicht. Hätte diese sich nur um etwas mehr als 3 Stunden verspätet, würde Ostern erst nächste Woche gefeiert.
Denn das Oster-Fest berechnet sich aus 1. Sonntag NACH 1. Vollmond nach Frühlings-Beginn.
Frohe Ostern!
