The Supermoon

May 7, 2012

So did you see the moon the other night?

Apparently it was the closest the full moon would be to the earth all year.

Supposedly May 5th was the best night to view it, but I was about 20 minutes too late to catch it first rising. So last night I got into position about an hour in advance and used my nifty skyview app to track the moon.

Next time I’ll try more long exposures and see if I can get a crisper shot. But I’m happy I caught such a gorgeous sight!

    Your moon pic far surpasses what we were able to get/see. Beautiful!

    I was in Toronto for a long weekend, and was stunned at the brightness of the supermoon even in the bright city lights! Your pictures are stunning.
