    I missed it too. Too overcast here in NC last night . Very nice pictures everyone!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    No editing, only white balance was changed (I know the last picture isnt the moon but it was in the spirit of the moon)

    Same for my part of NC. I kept going outside and looking but saw some semi-glowing clouds. It was a real bummer.

    Thanks all for the great pictures!

    So I went out at 11pm last night (Moonrise begins at 22:59 ET) to watch the moon rise over the horizon, here in the Eastern Time Zone, and was surprised to find it already high in the sky..that's because it rose over 3 hours earlier!

    It rose approx 19:45 ET (7:45 pm) not 23:00..(ET does mean Eastern Time doesn't it? or is ET something else?) And where did you find 22:59? I googled it, and the only reference to that time google can find is..this thread! The moon technically reached "full moon status" at 11:35 PM Eastern time..but that was several hours after it rose..I did see a few references on-line where news stories confused that "full moon time" with "moon rise time"..which are not the same thing..I saw some news stories that said the moon would rise at 11:35PM eastern time..which was wrong..

    Perigee was from the article linked above. Moonrise was from a local article to which I erroneously added 3 hours - duh that's why we have time zones. Perigee time should have been correct since it is not dependent on the Earth's rotation. Exact minute of moonrise/sunrise will depend on your longitude at the moment (dependent on earth's rotation and orbital movement/position of the moon). I should have said to check you local almanac for exact moonrise time but didn't. My bad.
