On a recent homeward bound train trip from Crewe, I got off the train at Tutbury/Hatton and cycled home in the rapidly gathering gloom. By the time I got to Egginton Junction Bridge it was almost dark and by Bannel's Gate there was a wondrous sight as the "super" moon rose above Mickleover.
Here is the best photograph that I could get of it.
Then I thought "Hang on a minute - it's a quarter of a million miles away, and getting a mile closer isn't going to make much difference".
Needless to say - it didn't.
"Moonrise over Mickleover" - what a wonderful title for a song.
