I went down to Selsey beach just down the road from my home to watch the perigee Moonrise. I have to say it's possibly the best Moonrise I ever recall seeing. Even as the first small part of the disk peeked over the sea horizon it was clear. A gorgeous deep red total eclipse like colour....a wonderful sight.

Special today - two LPODs for the price of one! Another Moonrise that arrived in my mailbox just as I posted Damian's image.
