When You Get Caught Between The Moon And Putrajaya

When you get caught between the moon and New York City,
I know it’s crazy but it’s true,
If you get caught between the moon and New York City,
The best that you can do,
The best that you can do. Is fall in love…”

~ Christopher Cross in Arthur’s Theme.

It was one of those nights when the moon was super-sized. Orangey, hazy but dim at about 9 pm. So big you can see the craters with your naked eyes. Contrary to popular belief, the best time to obverse the moon is not during a full moon. Details are more pronounced when you can see the ‘divide’, as with last night

Unfortunately, by the time I found this Putrajaya bridge to juxtapose, it has already risen higher and became smaller. This is a composite image with two lenses (one tele and one wide) with the moon at the same spot.
