November Supermoon in CA

Mundane Wednesday: The not-so-super moon

I loved the publicity surrounding the supermoon this week. (A supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.) And I actually saw it on Sunday night, big, bright and close to the horizon. I don’t, however, have a good camera or the patience to take pictures.

For fun, I will share some of the best photos taken by other people, from around the SF Bay Area and the world, here: Bay Area locals flood social media with images of the extraordinary supermoon, by Amy Graff and Douglas Zimmerman.

What my iphone camera shows is something that looks more like the sun than the moon: a bright, blazing ball shining between the tree branches, but without the accompanying beautiful sky colors. For the Mundane Monday Challenge #84.
