Last sighting of the August full moon

Posted by dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 19 August 2008 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Saturday was August full moon and this shot was taken the following morning just as the sun was rising and giving the beautiful pink glow to the sky. Ten minutes later the moon could not be seen.

Very nice shot. I was able to see the moon last night from the aircraft window just as it was rising and the sun was setting. Well done!
