Full moon comes today – August 15, 2019 – at 12:29 UTC (8:29 a.m. Eastern). Read more about tonight’s moon. This shot is from master nature photographer Colin Legg in Australia. He wrote that he snapped it back in March 2019, as a homage to the Apollo 11 50th anniversary this year. It’s the moon rising in the coastal town of Carnarvon – in Western Australia – home to the largest NASA space tracking station outside the United States in the 1960s and 70s. Read more about Carnavon’s role in the Apollo missions.

Thanks for a brilliant photo, Colin!

Bottom line: Full moon over Carnarvon, Australia.
