Tonight’s ‘supermoon’ might be a many photogenic: Share your photos below

September 17, 2014 - Supermoon

Another supermoon is going to start tonight. This supermoon is also a collect moon. The multiple of those dual features, along with a sky embellished with skinny clouds, could make tonight’s supermoon really photogenic.

A supermoon is when a full moon occurs on a same day as a moon is closest in a circuit to earth.

A collect moon might be even some-more critical for photographing a moon. A collect moon is a full moon closest to a autumnal equinox. This month’s full moon is closer to a autumnal equinox than subsequent month’s full moon. So tonight is also a collect moon.

The collect moon is some-more photogenic for dual reasons. First, a sky gets darker now as compared to summer. Sunset is now around 8:00 p.m. in many of Michigan. Skies will be dim by 8:30 p.m. The moon rises this dusk during 7:36 p.m., according to Richard Walker, astronomer during Longway Planetarium in Flint. So by a time it is dark, a supermoon and collect moon will be only above a horizon. This should make for a good event to sketch a moon with landmarks and a setting in a foreground.

The other reason a collect moon might be so photogenic is a speed of a moon’s climb into a sky. The collect moon’s reduce trail in a sky means it will float nearby a setting for a longer time. So we might be means to snap cinema from several of your favorite locations.

The sky should be fine to glorious for photographing a supermoon/harvest moon tonight. The over south and easterly we are in Michigan, a clearer your skies will be. And there should be some thin, photogenic clouds in a sky in many areas.

Let’s share a beauty with a readers. Post your best supermoon/harvest moon cinema below, and I’ll make a print gallery. Please give me a caption, and who shot a photo.
