Apparently the moon is very big at the moment. I've noticed this. I've also tried to photograph it. Unfortunately cameras are not very good at capturing things like the moon in a dark sky, and so what I ended up with could have been quite easily replicated using a piece of card with a hole in it. Apparently I'll have to wait another 18 years for another chance. Oh well.
Little known facts about the moon: Number one and only:
The combined width of three matchsticks held at arm's length will more than cover the moon in the sky.
