Last night I was out reviewing some streetlights that are being tested by the City of San Marcos (more on that later). As I was heading back up the mountain I had the most unusual sight. I was looking down on the rising waning gibbous Moon.
I drove for a bit, found a safe place to pull over and took this shot:
The photo doesn't do justice to the view I had and by the time I took it it no longer quite looked the same. Still I give you last night's moonrise from Palomar. Those are the stars of Scorpius to the upper right of the Moon.
