Alpine Superga Moonset
December's Full Moon phase occurred near perigee
, the closest point in its orbit around our fair planet. Big and bright
, the fully illuminated lunar disk sets over rugged mountains in this early morningscape from Turin, Italy
. Captured just before sunrise on the opposite horizon, scattered sunlight near the edge of Earth's shadow
provides the beautiful reddish glow of the alpine peaks. Hills in the foreground are still in shadow. But the scattered sunlight just illuminates the dome and towers of Turin's historic Basilica of Superga on a hilltop
near the lower right in the telephoto frame.

The "Discuss" link from this site https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html
is not working properly.
Quite a picture though!

Beautiful scene! I added it to my wallpapers
Smile today; tomorrow's another day!
I wish the word supermoon could be surgically removed from the English language.

Nice shot.... no wonder Hannibal had a hard time....
Great View, nice Moon...
This is my Supermoon shot from the other night, but mine was with my telescope, and new camera... so it is a bit of a close up...
