Thanks to everyone who took a photo!
Yeah, I was looking at it about an hour after it first rose, I think.

Yea i know i can't see nothing right now though.. rain and cloud. Maybe it got bigger for a bit when the moon rose? Then it changed?

Like I said earlier, it's not close enough to make a significant difference in size and brightness, maybe a percentage point, maybe.

It will probably seem brighter just due to your expectations, and the fact that your actually taking a good hard look at the moon which on most days you don't. Paradolia, that might be the word for it. Seeing something that you expect, even if its not there.
