A short video of the full moon today

I decided to check the ability of the video camera to catch a full moon today. I and my son had a go at it. This video clip is one of the few I managed to grab on a cool December night on the terrace. Despite best efforts there is a mild chromatic aberration.

Another video clip of the full moon.

Full moon on Jan 30th 2010 from Cochin

I perked up this snap of the moon with photoshop.

The full moon was spectacular on Jan 30th 2010. See these giant/ large snaps of the moon on this day at 8 PM, taken via 4.5 inch reflector telescope from my home here in Cochin, India.

I and my kids (and some friends) had a good time enjoying the view through the scope.
The full moon on Jan 30th 2010 was a little larger in size and much brighter. I could see many small craters, all over the lunar surface.
