There has been much talk lately of the impending “Super Full Moon”. This is when the moon is closer to Earth than most other times when it is full. The difference in kilometres and apparent size is not enormous, but is enough to resolve a little more detail on the surface for a given lens/telescope.
With the weather forecast for Sunday (full moon night) looking very bad for Perth, I thought I’d pop out with the camera this evening and snap the nice bright moon while I could. It looks beautiful in this phase, with much of the moon visible but still a nice line of shadows across the terminator.
Prints and copyrighted use is available upon request.
In the lead up to the Super Full Moon in three days time, this is the view of The Moon on the evening of 20th June 2013.

I was building my new website just now, and came across this great photograph taken at my AstroFest 2012 stall. If you were ever in any doubt as to what my prints looked like in person, and what type of products I sell, this should help!
