This month’s full moon is what is now called a super moon, one that is slightly closer to the Earth and thus larger in appearance. Perhaps.

I had to wander about in order to find it at all due to the heavy tree cover in my neighborhood. I finally was able to get a shot standing across the street at the foot of a driveway. Now that I remember it, I saw the moon all the time growing up in Kansas. Fewer trees and a massive horizon does it.

I’m considering a Photoshopped version for the Moon City Press Facebook page.
