I took these pictures on September 9th 2014. The Sept. 9 super moon was the last to complete the trio of super moons that began in July. The biggest and brightest of the trio was the one that occurred Aug. 10.
I used my neighbor’s tree as a reference to capture the rising moon in the eastern sky.
It is by far the biggest and brightest object in the night sky however, the moon is not an easy subject to photograph.
Super moons are lunar phenomena where the moon reaches a point in its orbit where it is closest to the Earth. At this point, the moon will appear to be bigger and brighter.
Nighttime: It’s trickier to take pictures at night, but the rewards are well worth it.
