A glorious full moon

Last night, coming back from dinner, the almost full moon was exceptionally large and luminous above the horizon, looking towards downtown Asheville from Broadway. I'd heard a piece on NPR earlier in the day about how exceptionally close the moon is currently to Earth, so I was keyed into thinking this was special.

I wish I had my camera, I said to my gardening companion, thinking if I dashed back, I might have got a decent shot.  But it was getting late, full moon photos aren't that remarkable after all, etc. (I've made plenty of posts on the subject already!)

Tonight, the moon will be full at 3:25 a.m.  This was my best shot at 10:30 p.m. (totally blown out from what I actually saw, of course).

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
