Winter Soltice/1st Day of Winter

This is the moon on a very special start to winter.

The moon was the closet that it will be to the earth for close to two hundred years. The Sun was also closer. This caused the moon to appear 7% larger and 14 % brighter. The cloud cover was dense but I had a few peeks every now and then.
