Last weekend's Super Moon was 16% larger than normal. This photo shows the moon as its light was penetrating a wispy layer of clouds. The clouds caused the extra marbling, and the dark spot in the top half of the moon is a cloud blocking the reflected light.
The extra large moon meant more reflected light. I will show the effects of that in my post tomorrow.
I did not have my good camera and good lenses available during the moon rise. This photo was taken with a semi-automatic camera, 15 times zoom, held by hand.
We have new travel photos posted at Viva la Voyage from our wonderful trip to Buddhist Bhutan.
