Moon over London

Now, that's what I call gibbous. No wait, that's a different kind of moon. This one is a Ponzo.

This is the spectacular sight thousands of people were treated to last night. Hanging low in the night sky, the moon appeared extraordinarily large and glowing like a massive red ball. Astronomers say the so-called "moon illusion" means that a full moon close to the horizon appears much larger than when it is high in the sky.
