Moon Setting over Mount of Olives

Moon setting over Mount of Olives

I was washing dishes this morning, around 6:15 a.m. The full moon was very low in the sky, so I grabbed my camera, mini-tripod, and a 250 mm lens. This photo has been cropped quite a lot because it’s not that big a lens and the horizon is over a mile away. The tower of the Augusta Victoria Hospital is barely silhouetted by the moon. Hmmm. I suppose I could try to recreate the Amman twin towers shot with the full moon and this tower. Just have to ask my friendly neighbourhood moon-watcher if he would mind doing the calculations.
