    Looks awesome, unfortunately I completely forgot about it. Although I suppose it's still pretty close only 2 days later…

    • aosux

      Most likely it would not have looked any bigger than usual depending on where you live.

  • Larry Talbot

    I see #19 and all I can think about is that (sorta) cheat code when you shoot the moon with a sniper rifle in GTA3…

    I saw part of it, but then proceeded to forget about it.

  • scientist

    almost all of them look shopped. is the moon really that big and red (even with the whole bending of the light spectrum and shit) and THAT close to the earth. i mean i saw it, wasnt too too specatular then any other full moon.

  • Jeovanna Drapac

    • Master

      That's the only difference I noticed. Looked like pretty much the same in size to me.

  • The Guy

    Yup, it's from my apartment.

  • My_Rushmore

    It was so cloudy on Saturday we didn't get to see it in Belfast, those pictures are amazing though.

  • imbrovvn

    What exactly causes the moon to look bigger? This is an awesome post by the way. I didn't get to see it… So, Kudos!

    • luca

      look bigger? being closer than usual might do the trick.

  • MikeJco

    You really get the scope in #14, breath taking!

    • Guest

  • Nazz1962
