I awoke early, at 4:00 AM, because the moonlight shining into the room was so bright. I then watched the moon set in the west, across the water, finally slipping below the horizon at 5:30 in the morning. The night sky was crystal clear and as the full moon slipped slowly down the in the western sky, it became larger and warmer, until it was a fat orange disk. The glimmer of moonlight across the water was magical and I thought of being able to see the moon set like this on a regular basis. My perfect Harvest moon view.
