I took some photos tonight of the full moon at Perigee. APOD talks about it here (http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap071025.html)

Sorry for the shameless link my blog.

Full moon photos? This is a family board!!

Ooh, the real moon...

Seriously, I like the detail and the sense of roundness of your photos.

I think that for humans, the change between apparent size of the moon at perigee and apogee is far less noticeable than the visual trick of an apparently far larger moon when it is low in the sky than high in the sky. (low in the sky, ground objects act as a reference, high in the sky you don't have these and the moon visual angle appears small compared to you field of view)
