Moonrise Over the Tennis Garden

Friday, March 18, 2011
It was a beautiful evening at the Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, CA.  Federrer (in the blue) was playing Nadal (orange) tonight for the semi finals in men's doubles.  Federrer's team won and will compete tomorrow for the finals.  But the full moon rising over the stadium only added to the evening (upper right).  Tomorrow is supposed to be the closest the moon's orbit will be to the earth for the next 19 years.  They say it'll look about 14% larger.  I just hope we don't have a cloud cover.
