I arrived at Ponte Vedra Beach around 7:30PM, parked on the sand dune and waited, suddenly, there it was: huge, almost transparent – it came up so sudden! (see left, tiny, above the horizon).
A small group of beach goers, and “astros” came to the beach to watch the moon rise. These photos were taken with no tripod.
