Here we are in November 2016, the last time the moon came this close to our beautiful planet Earth was back in 1948…one year before I was born. Being the photographer that I am, I was not going to let this moon slip by me without capturing it. You see, I have been documenting the full moon for the last 22 months, in as many locations as I could afford to go within the USA. The Super Full Moon was going to be THE one because of its close proximity to where we are. Was there excitement in the air? Yes…because I knew the next time this will happen, I just may not be able to scout a location of my choosing and carry my equipment to the site of choice…granted it will only be 18 years from now…LOL!
How many of you who photographed this beautiful Super Full Moon thought it was really that much larger than all the other super moons? If you photographed it on the rise, it probably looked a bit larger. Honestly, I could not tell the difference at least here in Austin. In talking with other photographers, either could they.
The images we did capture were ones that we can talk about to our children and grandchildren; and perhaps, they will be able to photograph the next Super Full Moon on November 25, 2034.
