The Setting of the Moon aka - what to do when you can't sleep

Moon Set As Day Begins
Unable to sleep, I got up and wandered out into the living room early this morning, only to find a beautiful full moon setting behind the remnant clouds from last night’s monsoon storm. So, what does one do when they see this? Grab a camera of course! When the moon is near the horizon, it appears that the rate it sets at speeds up, so you’d better be quick about that photograph. I missed the full moon, but caught this one as it was dipping below the horizon.

Got something to say?
