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.
