On Saturday May 5th, Cinco De Mayo, while others are out drinking the night away another event is going on, a “supermoon” is in the sky, it is the closest and therefore the biggest and brightest full moon of the year. At 11:34 p.m., the moon is about 221,802 miles from Earth. That’s about 15,300 miles closer than average. That proximity will make the moon appear about 14 percent bigger than it would if the moon were at its farthest distance.
Check out the new section of my portfolio for Lunar Photography, I still don’t own any gear to make a solid attempt at Lunar Photography but that added challenge helps make it more fun.
I also added a few images to the Scenic Photography section from the night leading up to the supermoon shots.
