Here is my attempt at tonight’s “super moon”. I didn’t try to photograph it right after moonrise. I figured it was too cloudy. As we sat on the couch, I noticed a glimpse of moonlight through the slider, and grabbed my camera. I took this photo only minutes before publishing this post (11:40 pm or so). I can tell the moon is closer, but wish I would have seen it earlier in the evening. I’m very glad I was able to capture some of the detail of the surface, which is truly magnificent and awe-inspiring… although maxing out at 200mm, I had to crop this in a lot. Here’s our beautiful moon, closer than it will be all year. My husband (who hates flying), would love to visit… I, however, am content to stay here for as long as possible.
