Here are the super moon pictures from 14 and 15 th Nov 2016 as promised.
The yellow/orange colour is mainly due to the moon being closer to the horizon than than when the grey picture was captured.
I think the moon is always pretty super, but on 14 Nov 2016 it is officially a super moon. It’s a little bit high in the sky tonight (13 Nov) by the time it is dark so I think it will be great to check it out when it first rises on about the 15th, for the east coast of Australia and should have lots of colour.
I think it can be relaxing and inspiring to look at the moon from time to time. If you have binoculars you can usually see the craters. If you have a small telescope or a long zoom on your camera you can take a shot and crop the image to magnify it. Can be a good family activity.
So how do they get those shots where the moon is huge on the horizon compared to ‘say’ a tree nearby. Essentially it is done by getting a long distance back from the ‘tree’ and zooming with something like a 400 mm lens. Not everyone has one of those. Then the image is processed to improve it and cropped to removed unneeded space.
I will post some updated photos here, if I am lucky enough to be able to take them.
