The recent full moon was absolutely amazing here in Bethel. The moon is up all the time lately and is so big that it is hard not to gaze at it in awe. This picture was taken on the way to school at about 8am a few days ago. The position of the moon is quirky right now. The moon rises at around 8pm in the northeast, stays up all night, then sets at around 2pm the next day in the northwest. So in the morning the moon is high in the west and in the evening the moon is high in the east. It's strange, interesting, and awesome.
