Moon over Chicago

Last night was a full moon. According to the news, the December full moon appears to be the largest due to the location of the earth to the moon. The sun was setting as the moon was rising so the moon gets a little pink coloring. There was some cloud cover right at the horizon, which obscured the "moon rise", but did lend some subtle pink to the sky, too.

I like the color of the sky, moon and the pier. It looks cold but beautiful.
