If you look West (or WSW from Port Townsend) you maybe you can see the Moon, and if you look carefully you may note Earthshine -the sunlight reflecting from Earth to gently light up the the darkish part of of the Moon with a dim blue-ish glow allowing you to see the entire side of the Moon that faces us. It’s the coolest thing ever, and is visible every crescent Moon. If you can see the moon at all that is.
