I was driving home from dinner last night and almost drove off the road when I spotted the most beautiful moon I've ever seen hanging out nonchalantly over Hempstead Harbor as I made my way from Port Washington to Roslyn.
I learned later this was the "Monster Moon," an astrological occurrence that results in a perfectly round, full, yellow-hued, awe-inspiring sphere hanging above us. It happens when the moon is perfectly aligned directly opposite Uranus and Mars.
I wanted to take a picture, but, alas, I was driving and that's a no-no. Did you snap a photo? If so, upload it here (http://bit.ly/Xj6ECh), and I'll compile them all into a gallery and post a link later in the week.
