The brilliant Full Moon rising on 11 November 2011 as seen by Brandon Booth (extreme right), Kos Coronaios (bottom left) and myself (including an inset Moon image).

Above the Moon the bright giant planet Jupiter can be seen. Notice the identical orientation of the Moon and Jupiter in Brandon's and my own image (both taken from Stellenbosch), and compare it with the orientation in the image by Kos (taken from Limpopo).

More rarely imaged is the Full Moon setting - see Francois Paul's image captured on the morning of November 11.

nothing more to see. please move along.
