Full Moon at Perigee

Camera - NIKON CP995
DateTime - 2007:10:25 23:10:02
Weather - Broken Cirrus clouds, light breeze, cool temps

Looked at the Moon through the cirrus clouds in Tak bins. Beautifully large! Felt as if she filled the whole field of view (but really not at all). The south pole offered spectacular relief along the southern limb below Tycho. Looked like it would be a few more hours until Full Moon as a small crescent of night time remained in an area from 5:30 to 9 o'clock along the limb.

The full Moon do not stand in the way of 17P/Holmes. Saw it naked eye with ease all night long even through the cirrostratus and cirrus clouds.

And the rhythm continues ...
