While I was watching a sunset one evening in Goleta, CA,
on the opposite horizon I saw a gorgeous "moon rise" on the
horizon behind me. It's my understanding that the
first full moon in October is often called the Harvest Moon
and it's the biggest the moon will look at anytime during
the year. It was incredibly huge as it peaked up over
the horizon. The sky was tinted a vague pink and
purple from the sunrise on the other horizon.
