Supermoon of 2012 (5/5/12)

The supermoon of 2012 is here. If you have ever thought of photographing the moon, this is the night of the year to do it. Every year the moon comes in it’s closest orbit with year, called Perigree. The moon is 14% larger during this phase which doesn’t seem like much. For best results to show the enlarged size of the moon, capture it near the horizon. Astronomers are not sure why it looks extremely larger, but who cares…it larger right!!

Good luck!
