Foto Friday: Supermoon!
OMG! The full moon of March 19 was larger than any full moon since the last time this happened, in 1993. Sharp observers will note that the world failed to end THEN, too. I hate to refer you to Wikipedia, except that it does have a nice comparison between the Supermoon and an ordinary full moon, plus this exciting information
"Perigee-syzygy" is hard to spell, hard to pronounce, and makes you sound as if you're speaking in tongues, so, heck yeah! Kind of like "magnetohydrodynamic" or "rovibrational". (Although I'm pretty sure Perigee-Syzygy is one of Lovecraft's Outer Gods.)
Anyhow, I confess to fiddling with the contrast in this photo. I was impressed at how well the camera captured the moonlit clouds, and even the landscape. This was using the B&W mode on the camera, taken in my front yard.
For those of you not sophisticated enough to appreciate the subtle beauty of black on black, here's an ethereal ray. sniff Peasants.
