Supermoon
I didn't get out last night to take pictures of the moon like I had wanted to. I had some cool places in mind and also wanted to have my tripod... However, I had a special dinner engagement so I snuck outside and took these freehand. The moon was rising just above the Cascade Mountain Range and I got this photo through the trees. The moon only had this color as it was rising just above the horizon.

Super Moon: A Natural Phenomenon The moon has an elliptical orbit, which makes full moons differ in size. When the moon is at its perigee, closest to earth, it’s approximately 31,000 miles closer to earth than when it’s in apogee, it’s farthest point. This weekends lunar phenomenon has been described as a super perigee moon. Perigee moons are about 14% larger and 30% brighter than apogee ones.

That moon is sooo BIG, you'd actually be
able to observe the "man in the moon"
mooning his neighbor on Mars.

I wished that I could have been out in the mountains. Anyways you did a amazing job at capturing this moon. One of these days I'll have to get one of those crazy zoom lenses.
