I had a beautiful view of the full moon last night. For about three minutes, that is, before the clouds rolled in and spoiled it for the rest of the evening. :(

I'm having trouble finding Antares, though. It's very low in the sky and I think a building may be blocking it off. I'll try again a little later in the evening when it's a bit higher in the sky.
