It is the closest, brightest, full moon since 1948.

Hmm... that's the year of Truman's upset win over Dewey.

We might not see the moon today, as it is heavily clouded and/or foggy, partly raining or snowing.

I hope your weather clears. The next one won't be until 2034.  :)

Sadly enough, there was no clearing - and I don't think that there will be one today - before daylight.

There's a clearing by now, stop - the moon is not gone, there's a glimpse between two clouds!

The camera did not work, the mobile pictures are a failure, and now, at daylight, thick clouds have hidden everything.

Too bad ...

At least, I could catch a glimps of a really big moon - lol.

Lol - funny, that happened to me too - and I am not Einstein - lol.

I think that I take the moon as granted, somehow like a "lamp" in the night, if the sky is clear enough, especially in full moon nights, and/or when listening to music (Debussy - Moonlight):

We did see it well last week as there isn't any light pollution or such where I live. Looked like you could almost touch it.

Yeah, it was HUGE.  :)
