Saturday was the night of the “Perigee Moon”-The time when the moon reaches it’s closest distance to Earth! We were also lucky because it was a full moon so that made it extra special. Here is a photo of this super moon:
Doesn’t really look 14% bigger than a regular moon but hey, at least I have photos! It was actually Hubby who took the pictures, because my body decided to get ill that night. Yes, if it wasn’t for my sudden lack of immunity, I would have been out there with all the other amateur astronomoy nuts snapping photos of our satellite earlier that night when it was closest to the horizon, because that’s when it looks REALLY big!
But Hubby also got this really cool shot:
The moon behind some trees….eerie! He’s a good photographer though and a great help. Being sick is no fun, but it helps to have a husband who indulges me and my many zany interests.
Did you guys see the moon? Did you take photos?
