Perigee Full Moon
The moon is in perigee, closest orbit to the earth. When full and near the horizon, it is large and golden. I took this shot at dusk, about 5:30 am. This photo - at 5x zoom, you can see the detailed features on the moon - even with this cheap pocket camera. Of course the moon always looks bigger in real life, than in photos.
