TH, that is an awesome pic :clap: :clap:

To us the moon did seem bigger than normal at full moon. Etv news said it looks about about 30% larger, and 14% brighter. They also said watching it rise tomorrow night would be best as then the sky will be dark.

Theuns, wow, that is just stunning and thank you :clap: :clap:

DB :thumbs_up:

I am so pleased that we were all following the moon.

Without the forum, I would have been oblivious.

Tomorrow I hope to post pictures.

I love what has been done.

The moon is a mystery, it is beautiful and sets the scene.

Great photos all! :clap: Glad you guys got to see it at its best last night. Maybe I take the moon for granted and the sunrises and sunsets because being up very early (in the dark) and outside at dusk with good horizon visual, I see them all the time. So a good reminder to me to take time to appreciate the beautiful moon and sun. :thumbs_up:

The moon rise was more impressive, size wise, I think. The moon set was very pretty over False Bay ... setting as the sun rose.
