Full Worm Moon

On Friday, Washington, D.C., experienced a full worm moon. The worm moon rose behind the Capitol and traveled across the sky, following the path of the National Mall. The last time this happened was last September and, like in September, I met up with the Flickr DC Social group to shoot the moon.


The shot would have been very good if the sun weren't still up and there hadn't been so much atmospheric haze. It would have been even better if the moon were close to the horizon, where an optical illusion would have made it look enormous. However, the sun was so bright that when the moon was on the horizon, it was impossible even to see the moon, not alone photograph it.

Fortunately, later in the evening, I was able to get some fine shots of the moon. I'm quite happy with the way this one turned out:
