Awesome Moth

When I got home from work tonight, I noticed this awesome looking moth on the ground:

Unfortunately, it was dead, but it's still quite beautiful and the wings were hardly damaged. I found the spots on the wings very interesting - parts of them are transparent. It's quite large, too. It's wing span is about 6 inches!

I think it's a polyphemus moth (see here). I've never seen one before.
