2020 SuperMoon

The closest supermoon of 2020 occurred last night so even though I already posted moon shots earlier this week I thought I’d give you another.

According to Wikipedia, “A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth.”

Is it just me or does this photo remind you of E.T.?

  1. Well done with capturing it, Susanne. Julie took a photo on her phone, but the Moon here had a fuzzy ‘halo’ around it last night.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have a terrific documentary called “The Last Man On The Moon” – all about the last Astronaut to set foot there….and nobody really cared, so he reflects on being alone on the moon doing his experiments and gathering samples! NASA provided all the footage so it’s really cool.
