Mesmerizing Moon!

So last minute yesterday evening I heard we were supposed to have this "Super Moon" where the moon was so many times closer to the earth than it's been since I think '93? But anyways I definitely wanted to capture this once-every-20-year occurance. So I went out at around 10:30 and tried what seemed like a million times to get the 'perfect shot' but it was so cloudy and hazy it was difficult so I was just like..oh well!

Well my son woke up (for some great unknown reason) at like 4 AM wanting to "get up for good" and I was like well...since I'm up I might as well take a look outside. Low and behold I see clear skies and a beautiful bright moon. My second attempt proved successful at capturing the Moon in all it's splendor! So I edited/uploaded them ASAP, then back to bed for me.

Well tonight the moon proved to have even more tricks up it's sleeve. It was a faint orange color! So I ventured out and got a few shots of that. Now I will overload you with several moon shots at once! I hope you enjoy...[Take with Canon 40D/Canon 28-200mm]
All the photos above were the ones taken on March 20th (today) at 4:45 AM..the next few are tonight at around 9:00! (Mar 20)
I hope you like them! :D

Great shots! I took a few too, but haven't uploaded them to the computer yet. My facebook feed was full of people's shots of the moon that night. I think it was the most photographed moon ever!

Like it???? what??? LOVE 'em!! hehe!

It was so rainy and cloudy and stormy here on the 19th that I thought I missed it for good -- and was rather upset - but figured I'd see the moon some other night, even if it wasn't "super" -- Then on the morning of the 20th, when Jeremy came home from work, he woke me up, told me to grab my camera and get outside shooting the moon. Well, Storm and I rushed outside, and sadly, where our house/neighboor hood sits, even though you could see the moon driving here, I couldn't find it anywhere! And Storm and I walked around several blocks trying to get around bldgs and trees and such -- :( boo. So I was like "whatever"... it's NOT that super of a moon. lol!! Then this morning I take Storm out and wow, that moon was shining! So I ran back in and grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots. They're no where near like yours (still rather hazy) but they'll do -- they're only a day late and a dollar short! lol!!


I said all that to say YOU ROCK!

You're my moon-hero!

I'm weird, glad you liked me before now. hehe.
