Seeing clearly again

Wednesday’s thick fog gave way to a clear Thursday, with light winds and temperatures in the high forties, though a busy schedule and limited daylight allowed for minimal observations. The massive MSC Seascape cruise ship was finally on her way to Miami after Wednesday night’s naming ceremony and press event celebrating the new year-round MSC service which will be run out of Brooklyn on a different MSC vessel.

DonJon’s Brian Nicholas maneuvered a DSNY scow with paper waste out of Pier 99. The stern of MSC’s 1,000 foot long Seascape is visible extending beyond the pier line in the background.
Brian then headed for the Pratt paper mill in Staten Island
Dean Reinauer was heading back to Newburgh Wednesday morning with a cargo.
The nearly full waning gibbous moon was visible at sunrise
