Stupendous orange and very large moon rose above the horizon as the sun was setting. My phone proves inadequate to capture the image. No clouds at all.

I hope to see it again sometime.

Clear blue skies all day, then the clouds rolled in about 6:00. They're bringing snow though, so I don't want to complain too much.

Awesome full moon here tonight, the skies were clear and bright, just a slight halo around the moon.  Not the biggest it's ever appeared, but it's got to be pretty high here to be visible above the trees.  Fantastic though!

It was bright and clear but not much bigger than it usually appears here.

Nice picture. It was cloudy here, so I didn't see anything. What building is that?

Absolutely beautiful moon last night. It was really clear so the moon was super bright and lit up the sky.

Looks like the Acropolis at Athens.

Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Shaquile O'Neal:

A reporter was interviewing Shaq on his return from a visit to Greece,
"Shaq, did you get to go to the Parthenon while you were in Athens?"
" I don't know. I can't really remember the names of the clubs that we went to."

Well, the world survived another epic solunar opposition with no ill effects (unless you count Operation Odyssey Dawn).

Yawn...

Yeah, you've got his number.   I lived in Orlando when Shaq played for the Magic.  He was a regular font of wisdom.

I wish I could remember the interview where he was making for of some other player and then tried to spell a word and spelled it wrong.  It wasn't exactly a tough word to spell either.  Hilarious, from the look on his face he knew he shouldn't have tried to spell.
