Staircase to the Moon

We were fortunate to be in Broome during the episodic event called the "Staircase to the Moon."  This phenomenon occurs in different locations along Australia's northwest coast, but Broome capitalizes on it with night markets.

It occurs when the rising full moon is reflected at low tide off the tidal flats.  It's an incredible sight, made even better by not having to leave our campsite!
