Full Moon Rises above the U.S. Capitol

09 Feb


The full Moon and the U.S. Capitol are seen early in the evening on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012 from Arlington National Cemetery. It looked bigger, brighter and more yellow than usual while it was rising.  The moon appears to be squashed. I guess it’s just atmospherical refraction/distortion which causes that…And because (moon) is about half degree size… you can calculate distance from Arlington National Cemetery and US Capitol (if you know size of US Capitol!). It’s a big camera lens focal too, about 600-800mm!
