East Coast of Ireland: Meath: Newgrange. This is a view of Newgrange taken on the 3rd December 2009 at 9:00am.  At this time the full moon rises before the sun sets and sets after the sun has risen - so that hunters have light for 24 hours, which is why the moon is called the Hunters' Moon.  As an added bonus, the moonset was just over Newgrange, the largest and most famous Megalithic burial tomb in Ireland.  In the foreground to the left can be seen a small burial tomb. For more information on Newgrange please see Newgrange.com
