Cosmo's Moon
I got a ride home from work this evening, and as Meli and I were driving along Route 3, just before the Meadowlands, when a gigantic full moon came up over the horizon, peeking between the construction projects. It's been a long time since I've seen a moon like that.

The last time I can remember where I saw something comparable was just at sundown, on the western coast of Australia, just a few kilometers outside of the Hutt River Province Principality. We climbed a steep dirt road, and just as we reached the peak, a blinding red light caught us by surprise. Uncertain as to the cause of this phenomenon, we eventually realized it was the sun, just as it was setting, and appearing at least five times its normal size.

Definitely an experience that you miss when you ride the bus.
