On Saturday night, it was beautifully clear, so Tommy and I walked to an elementary school about two blocks away to wait for the moon to rise over the mountains.
According to the web, moonrise was supposed to be at 8:20pm, but I didn’t know if that accounted for the mountains or not. Apparently not. After a while, we walked home and got Tommy ready for bed.
Around 9:30 I saw the glow of the moon peeking out so I walked back to the school and set up my tripod and zoom lens. I am pretty happy with the photos I got.
Last night was the true super moon and the moon at its fullest for this lunar cycle. It had been a bit cloudy all day so I wasn’t sure if I would have an unobstructed view.
Moonrise was supposed to be just after 9pm, so around 10pm I started watching for the glow of the moon.
Rather than walk to the school, I just parked myself on the sidewalk in front of my neighbor’s house, away from bright street lights and watched the moon rise over the mountains.
It was very beautiful.
