Moonrise over the San Fernando Valley from El Escorpion Park.
From a late afternoon run on December 8. The moon is about 98% full, and about a day and a half away from the total lunar eclipse that occurred before sunrise on December 10, 2011.
The pink alpenglow results from sunlight passing through the Earth’s atmosphere. The dark area just below the alpenglow is the Earth’s shadow.
Here’s a larger version of the photograph.
