A fussy dog got me up early to snap this photo of Haystack Rock during the Moon's closest approach to Earth in 2012. An interesting sidebar is that, when making this my desktop's background, the image gets stretched, reducing the altitude of the rock but producing an artist's rendition of a sunset on Titan.
