Super Moon

© Jens Preshaw

Last night was an amazing evening for photographer’s to be outside with their cameras. It was a rare combination of clear skies and a ‘Super Moon’ or ‘Perogee Moon’. The full moon was at its closest point to the Earth and was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than any of the other full moons in 2012. There was also the highest high tides and lowest low tides during this time, although the difference was only a few centimeters. The image above is a 30 second exposure of the Coast Mountains bathed in the moonlight.
