Tonight the moon was almost full and was rising above the horizon as I tackled my nightly commute.
I first saw the moon while in Livermore when it was just over the hills and it looked very large. However, it was faint as it was still light. It soon disappeared behind the Altamont, but I knew that I would see it again later in my commute.
You can see that the moon is starting to rise up into the air and appearing smaller and smaller.
However, you could still see a lot of detail of the surface of the moon which does not show up in these pictures.
I had to make a stop at the library on the way home and I tried to take a picture of the moon to show the detail.
Tonight I took a long solitary walk under the almost full moon. You can tell that fall is here as leaves are starting to appear on the sidewalks and it is getting a bit chilly.
