It was amazing to see the full moon rising up through the forest (in the back of the garden at the end of a spring night hike program). It looked like a harvest moon, yellow, large, and luminous. Driving home, the moon was huge.
At 10 pm, this is how the moon, Saturn, & Spica were aligned (if this was visible where you are). I think with binoculars, in a dark night sky, that you could see Spica - I could see both (earlier) before the moon's brightness swamped them out.
