Tonight’s so called “Supermoon” perigee syzygy the only one in 2017. This full moon is closer to earth in its elliptical orbit so it appears 7% larger and 15% brighter than normal. This is the first of a rare supermoon trilogy with another coming on Jan 1st followed by a third, the super blue moon on Jan 31st.
With a forecast for rain tomorrow night, I headed to East Beach Norfolk to take some Supermoon pictures. I wanted to get an interesting foreground to help add some scale to size of the moon. Canon 7D Mark II, 1/40sec @ f/13, ISO 200, 400mm focal length.
