Did everyone see the full moon set this morning? It was very beautiful and I don't think I've ever seen the full moon set in the daytime before. :excited:

I certainly saw the full moon shining peacefully onto our street from 2-4am.

I also saw Venus and Mars in conjunction this morning about 6 am.
Even me?

That's certainly the correct orientation, Venus being the yellow ball.

However they looked smaller, and Venus was much brighter than Mars.
