Thread: Super Moon tonight

  1. #1

    Super Moon tonight

    According to this morning's Sunrise on Channel 7:

    Sky watchers are set to be delighted tonight when a rarely seen Super Moon will become visible from the Earth. It's set to be the biggest and brightest lunar spectacle since 1948. The phenomenon will make the moon appear bigger and brighter.

    The best time to catch the glimpse of the super moon will be n the twilight hour, before the sunset.

    ...and showers and thunderstorms predicted for this evening.... figures.
    A7RII and a couple of GM lenses to play with (loving it)
    Some older Pentax-mount lenses
    GoPro's (HD1's, 2, 4-black)
    Iphone - hey.. its always there!

    Work: way too many cameras/lenses (mainly Canon) to deal with, so it was worth buying the Metabones 4.

    I went out and got out the areoguard to stop the mozzies.
    And I really thought what a waste of time. I could put a full moon shot I have got now next to the so called supermoon and you wouldn't be able to tell which one is which.
    But I had these thoughts before it happened and maybe this got me of side with it.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) had some shots of the moon rising last night over Bondi Beach, the day after the main non-event.... looked pretty stunning.
    It was much clearer when I walked the dog last night near dusk, but the moon hadn't risen at that point... so no rushing for the camera.
    Just have to wait another 34 years...
