Yahoo! News said that the moon would be nearest the Earth on January 10, and so the full moon would be at its biggest and brightest for 2009.
I took this snap that night at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig. The moon shone from behind the clouds with a rainbow nimbus encircling it like a halo. It was breathtaking. Many stopped to take pictures.
It was even bigger and prettier the next night. From our open front door, a cool night breeze wafted into our living room as we basked in the bright moonlight gleaming through the trees.
The pale goddess of the dark never fails to captivate. No wonder they say that men are driven mad on such nights as this.
