Super Moon November 2016

The Full Moon on November 14th was the biggest and brightest until 2034. It was about 30,000 miles closer than usual. A moon can be called a “Supermoon” if it is up to 14% bigger and appears 30% brighter when it is at its farthest point in orbit. The moon orbit around Earth varies as it has an elliptical orbit. The next one similar to this one is expected to be on Monday November 25th, 2034.  I do not think I will be staying up to photograph that one!



Hunters Moon & Super Moon 10 16 16

The October Super Moon will make its closest approach to Earth on the 16th. The Hunter’s Moon is the full moon after the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. I was expecting a little warmer color, but it was still interesting to photograph. I only had a 300mm lens with me so I had to crop in quite a bit.
