Rising Over Montreal

We stood at Westmount lookout, waiting for the moon, looking east. It rose over the mountain in the distance, hazy at first, but becoming clearer as it rose higher in the sky. Photographers stood with their tripods and long lenses snapping away at the perigee moon.


How different is it from a regular full moon? It did appear large, but once it was high in the sky the slight difference in its apparent size was minimal. Nonetheless, every full moon is captivating and on a clear spring night, this one hovered over the city.

Lighting up Montreal

As it rose higher, the city lights blinked on, while the moon's shimmer could be seen in the river.
