The Supermoon of 19th March, 2011: Supermoons occur when the moon is unusually close to the earth and as a result appears 14% bigger and shines 30% brighter. The last time this happened was nearly 20 years ago in March 1993.
I’m thrilled. Not only was the weather with me for this special event, I have ticked off an item from my Photography Bucket List – to get a shot of the moon that I was at least half-way happy with. This is where I say a big thank you to Brian at FS Photography for being generous in sharing his expertise. I think I’m now half way to understanding what I’m doing with night-time shots!
