Super(ish) Moon

07 May

Day 125

Saturday was the “Super Moon”- a night where the moon would appear larger and brighter than normal.  Unfortunately, last night was rainy and cloudy so we missed it here at the Jersey Shore.  I got to thinking though– if the moon was a certain percent larger on one night– how much smaller could it be the following night?  So I checked the moonrise schedule and made my way to the bay tonight to watch the moonrise– I was glad I did– it was pretty large and soooooo red!

This picture is completly unedited– it was so red and bright it looked like a sunrise!

Here was after it had risen– I’m telling you- it looks like a sunset!

And  here’s a picture of the moon through a swingset

    Beautiful. I really like the swing set shot. The sunset moon looks awesome. This rain, fog and clouds are getting to me too, but you managed to capture some great images! Definitely looks like sunset in the first shot. Been trying to get some sunrise pictures, but no luck yet due to the weather.
