Just caught this on the ISS live feed and thought I would share. As most of you know, the moon is closer to the Earth as it has been in 18 years....the so called "Super Moon". Normally, you cannot see the Moon on the ISS live feed, but since it is so close, we see it now....

That was very cool - at first it looked like a mushroom cloud as it was coming over the horizon.

I don't think I've ever see a shot like that before. Thanks for sharing

Yeah I thought it was pretty cool! I've watched the ISS for quite awhile and have never seen that before. I can't wait to see the moon tonight!

I thought it was only slightly closer?

Interesting that the "moon illusion" of a large moon on the horizon we see on Earth doesn't happen in space, but that looks like a wide angle camera so that doesn't help.

I know! It just goes to show how we really have no concept of the size of things in space.....the moon looks so small in comparison to the Earth.....so just imagine how small Earth would be to Saturn or Jupiter!
