I’m sorry my little camera can’t do justice to the enormous, bright moon we’ve had the last few nights. I took these photos two nights ago, as Super Moon mounted the sky.
Super Moon is defined as “… a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.”
I knew it wasn’t just my imagination. It has been so bright, and each night coming up a little later – at 5am it still lit my bedroom like a torch.
Here’s an interesting article from earthsky.org
I wonder if Eugene Field was inspired by a Super Moon.
