We have a reasonably clear sky here in Bristol, too. I'll look out at dusk over Fishponds and see what it's like. The full moon always rises around 6pm local time, did you know that?

The moon is absolutely beautiful:-6

Here's some pictures from the beach...Pictures are not great as they were taken from a simple, digital camera.

They came out great Diana. It's a beautiful moon, isn't it! I think that I have to invest in a camera that will hook up to my telescope.....wishful thinking....they cost a fortune I think.

I saw the almost full supermoon Friday night in Houston, but up here it was cloudy and there was no moon, super or otherwise, to be seen.
