As the 7 am hour approached, the moon shone brightly over Mud Point, from a perspective along the Eagle Point Road shoreline.  As the moon drew closer to the horizon, one could almost see it move.   Nearing the treeline, the moon appeared to expand in size through the help of atmospheric refraction. 

Here are some photos taken this morning between 6:45 am and when the moon set at about 7:15.
