    1st time in 38 years (since 1977) that the Full Moon has coincided with Christmas day.
    Didn’t look like I was even going to be able to see the moon much less shoot it with all our days of constant rain & heavy clouds / overcast.
    But at 7:00pm tonight, I noticed the rain tapering off, the overcast separated, and to my complete surprise the moon appeared in the opening right overhead.
    I was able to run out, set up and shoot it from my driveway !!
    Won’t happen again in my lifetime.
