Super Moon - take pictures and share 'em
I'm heading out to the bay in a little bit to capture some pics of the moonrise. I will upload them when I get back.

GLPers, you know the drill. Always have the camera ready.

Let's see some cool pics!

Re: Super Moon - take pictures and share 'em
It doesn't rise here till 7:30pm, so guess I will have to catch it in the east, if I can. It's hard to get a view of the east very well here on the west coast, from where I am situated. It won't set over the Pacific till like 4 or 5 am and I won't be up.

That's a good idea, though, didn't think of catching it when it comes up, rather than when it sets, duh.

Embedded for ya. We did have a thread with pics last year. I wasn't able to get any good shots. I had gone to a wildlife reserve to set up, but didn't realize it closed at dusk, so between point A and finding a point B, I missed getting some awesome photos. :(

It was pretty cool watching the sunset glow in the west and the moon rising from the east last night.

That's cool!

I'm not going to get a zoom. I want to catch it reflecting on the bay with boats and stuff. :-P

I would prefer to be parked up on Skyway Bridge, but that's not gonna happen (cameras/cops/jail). chuckle

Re: Super Moon - take pictures and share 'em
I can't take pictures and share, but I found a great article from The Watchers...

Supermoon this weekend, Eta Aquarid meteor shower and Venus transit this week
This weekend will provide the full Moon’s closest approach of the year to Earth. On Saturday, May 5, 2012 the Moon could appear as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2012, according to some calculations.

Every month, as the Moon circles the Earth in its elongated orbit, its distance from the Earth varies. This weekend, the Moon is reaching what’s known as its perigee, the closest point to Earth in its orbit. It will be about 356,953 kilometers (221,802 miles) from Earth on Saturday. Apogee — when the Moon is farthest away — varies, but is around 405,000 km (252,000 miles) away.

The last supermoon was in March 2011. At the time, it was the biggest and brightest full moon in 18 years.

What is most interesting is that the timing of the perigee and full Moon is really, really close: The full moon occurs at 03:34 UTC on May 6 (11:34 p.m. EDT on May 5 ) eastern and perigee follows at 03:35 UTC (11:35 p.m. EDT)

But even better is that two weeks after the “supermoon” on May 5th, the Moon will be at apogee as it lines up in front of the Sun for an amazing annular eclipse on May 20th. An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus, surrounding the outline of the Moon.
