    The moon was forecast to rise right across The capitol hill, Washington memorial and Lincoln memorial on 28th of Feb. There were many people gathered to capture the nice moment but the skies were cloudy and I was able to get only the following.My pics a bit grainy. First time trying to shoot Moon with other stuff in the picture. C&C welcome.

    2nd one looks really cool, especially with the matching lights on top of the monument.

    I like the first one better, spooky!... It looks like these are taken with a REALLY long zoom, to get that perspective distortion with the moon looking that huge and the three monuments looking like they are one block apart. Care to share some exif?

    Cool shots, shame about the noise. Have you done any noise reduction on these?

    Wow, nicely done! I like them both, but there's something about the partially obscured orangey moon behind the Capitol building in the second shot (is that the Capitol building?) that really grabs me.

    There's actually software that allows you to track where the moon will rise and set.

    Awesome captures!

    Thanks Antarctican!

    I was on a meetup group and one of the organizer had said that the moon would rise in line with all these some 3 months back. There were close to 40 people there for this event. And I did see a similar picture before.
    Thanks, I haven't tried any. Will try.
    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    Yes, there are websites to track.
