All Full Moons look the same. So, once you've seen one, you don't need to observe it again. In fact, you're wrong!
This composite show 12 successive Full Moons caught from May 2005 to April 2006. And you can notice that its diameter and its looks isn't the same (because of the Moon's libration). See this high definition version (2100 x 1575 pixels) to convince yourself. Those changes are more impressive in those animations :
- animation in Flash (800 x 800, 1.6 Mo)
- animation in GIF (800 x 800, 3.0 Mo)

Same thing in black and white :
- animation in Flash (800 x 800, 1,6 Mo)
- animation in GIF (800 x 800, 3,0 Mo)
