Moon and Earth by Col. Virts on ISS

Full moon setting
Hardly news, though - from whatever perspective - our inconstant Moon levels all who can see. Some are gifted with better "sky" than others. This moment from the folio of Col. Terry W. Virts, who has been onboard the International Space Station since November 23.
Described as a "moonset," my first, admittedly earthbound, impression is it was almost certainly a "moonrise." Or is that simply my inner nerd coming out?
