If by get up you mean before the crack of dawn, yup, saw it en route to work. Neat looking :thumbsup:

All due to conservation of angular momentum and a receding elliptical orbit..

I didn't bother, but my wife saw it and said she has seen bigger harvest moons. :noidea:

Of course, refraction and atmospheric dust (lens effect) can make the moon and sun look larger near rise/set. But the clear sky full moon at about 60 degrees altitude was gorgeous last night. Even the deer didn't need flashlights.
