Super Moon of 2020

“With freedom, books, flowers,
and the moon who could not be happy?”

Super Moon 2020

After the sunset yesterday around 8:00, I noticed a beautiful bright full moon. I grabbed my camera and shot quite a few images including this zoomed in shot.

This morning I downloading the images to my laptop, grabbed a cup of coffee and read the daily news. I was surprised to read that last nights full moon was the final of the super moon type.

Super moons occur when the moon is on its closest approach to Earth in orbit. The moon will appear brighter and bigger in the night sky. This full moon was only visible from the evening of May 6 until the morning of May 8, and comes on the heels of the biggest and brightest super moon of the year in April, but it’s still more spectacular than a typical full moon.

The past few years I’ve attempted to get a clear crisp image of a full moon but this is the first time I was happy with my image of the final super moon of 2020.

Shine On

  1. Oh yes, I saw it the day before yesterday but I didn’t know then that it was a super moon. I just kept staring at it thinking oh my god that’s such a beautiful sight today and soon after some time there was some rain. Thanks for the information.

    Best wishes from The Strong Traveller and have a great day
