Supermoon rising behinds a large tree on the Colorado eastern country horizon. One of my favorite spots. This is one shot and not a composite as the moon was rising as the sun was setting. The best night as far as I am concerned. But it’s all good and depends on what you are going for. The next night I came back to get the 2nd night, an hour later in the night so it is darker and you have to do a composite image. Lot of people saw me shooting this image on the side of the road. And when I returned there were two shooters and got to about six trying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Any way….
Here are some facts for you. It’s called the Mega Beaver Moon in November in the United States because for both colonists and the Algonquin tribes it came at the time of the year when beaver traps were set before the swamps froze over. A supermoon may bring the largest tides of the year, but the variation is not large enough to account for earthquakes, flooding or volcanoes — or for driving people insane. Astronomers don’t call it a supermoon, which has no scientific basis. They call it a perigee-syzygy moon. The term supermoon was coined 30 years ago by an astrologer.
