The last time the moon was this close to the earth was eighteen years ago, at the beginning of Bill Clinton’s administration. Then, it was not even a full moon. I whizzed out tonight to witness the supermoon, in its full state (which it was not eighteen years ago) to see if I could fully appreciate its entity, plus tonight’s extra 14%. I could not exactly, but the illumination of the estuary mud was a sight worth seeing even if the camera could not quite pick it up.
It was pretty damn cold tonight too.
