Super Moon Sunday

Once again, a great opportunity for photographing The Moon (Earth's natural satellite) is upon us.

 They call it a Super Moon, but all it really means is the Moon is at perigee while it is full. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. Perigee is when it's very slightly elliptical orbit is closest to Earth. When this happens at the same time it is full, it makes a brighter Moon. It actually happens on the average several times a year. This month, the full Moon is very close in time to perigee, so it will be near the brightest and biggest it can be.

So, tomorrow night, August 10th, use my new sky map and go see the Moon. Hint, near 10:00pm, it will be high enough up in the ESE sky to see it clearly. If you scout out ahead of time, you might a good foreground subject for right as it crosses the horizon a bit earlier.

If you stay up to the early morning hours, say 3:00-4:00am, you might see some good meteors from this year's Perseid meteor shower. Hints for viewing a meteor shower.

Enjoy this astronomical Sunday night through Monday morning!
