I've never seen either when I've gone through there and starting to wonder - is this fake news?
I haven't seen it either, but then I've only gone through twice and both times were in the Fall, so maybe too cold for the moon. I did see a full moon while riding the first Autumn Express.
Definitely not fake news. I've seen many moons, on several CZ trips.
I have traveled the route many times and have seen moons on each trip, including the trip in December one year (although the moon was not on the river, it was in the parking lot just after Moffat Tunnel).
