Moon Lighting Suggestion

I'm doing a stage play and the script calls for a scene where moonlight needs to come in through the window. You also need to see the full moon. I'm not too sure on how to do that.

Maybe a gobo or some type of reflective cutout with a spot on it might do it? Also, what's a good color gel for the moon light.

Appreciate the help,

i would do it pretty much the same way... bounce a fresnel or narrow spot off a white disc. artificial night-time lighting always seem to be portrayed as varying shades of blue... depending how light or dark you want to get, some shade of blue would probably work.
