The pink full moon sets just before dawn aligned in the center of the opening underneath Scripps Pier.
I've always thought I was born in the wrong century. I love the idea of space travel but I really don't know if that will be possible in my lifetime, maybe there will be tourist trips to the moon in a decade or two. Scripps pier has always been a metaphor for that to me. Looking down an enormous tunnel to see celestial bodies and stars in the opening but not yet being able to walk through.
Needless to say, it's extremely rare to get the full moon centered in the opening of Scripps Pier. For the entire decade of the 2020s, it only occurs on two days. Given how often we have a marine layer that blocks the horizon, I feel very lucky to have witnessed this and photographed this.
