The Death of David Kelly - The phase of the moon on 17th July 2003?

I was wondering if anyone happened to know the phase of the moon on the night of 17th to 18th July 2003.

Or knew where I could find that out.

Knowing the phase of the moon on that night would help understand whether any hypothetical actors in delivering David Kelly's body to Harrowdown Hill might have needed night-vision goggles or similar equipment.


  1. full moon was Sunday evening previously.
    So, probably looking something like Friday 27 May 2005 here, a waning gibbous moon.

  2. Thanks, Felix.

    It seems to me that, subject to cloud cover, visibility on that night would have been pretty good without anything such as night-vision goggles.
