Super Duper Moon

The closest approach of the moon to the earth is called the moon's perigee.   When the moon is full at perigee, it is called a Super Moon.   Tomorrow is a  Super Mood.  Better yet, it will be the most super moon in 69 years.  It will be within 85 miles of the closest it ever comes to the earth.  That is a Super Duper Moon.

Re: Super Duper Moon

Call me blind, or not easily impressed, but it might be a little brighter? and not overly noticeable as bigger.... not like in the movies when ET rides in front of the moon.

It is such a phaff setting up the camera with the long lens, and that bugger pans so fast it is a pain to try and photograph, so as of 22:14, I can tell you it's almost overhead.

No, I am sorry.  I meant you saw the moon when it was much closer.  You know, back in the olden days when you were a kid. :-)

Yes and no.... I was getting more done when TS went dark....  Seems like I may need to find a TS Anonymous group.
