One of my best memories of night sailing happened about 10 years ago as I was sailing down the Cheaspeake. Sundown happened about several hours before and I was enjoying the peace and solitude of the night with the gentle breeze as I made my way toward Solomons when all of a sudden a bright light shown on the cockpit from astern. Why was I not more vigilent in keeping a watch for those freighters and barges that travel the bay? As I looked astern expecting to see the outline of a fast approaching ship to my relief it was the full moon rising. Wow....what a sight.
