Perigee full Moon of January 2, 2018
After a clear cloud free day, the clouds came over as the moon rose, got this shot in a brief hole in the cloud, the it socked in completely.
My plan to take sequential shots showing the Moon receding was foiled, and I only had time to do this mobile phone shot, not one with my better cameras.
At this time the Moon was 357000 km from Earth, not as good as at astronomical twilight (356896 km) but still closer that the perigee Moon of 4 Dec 2017.
It doesn't look good for Mars and alpha2 librae tomorrow morning.
