    Lightbulb Super moon ~ ~ ~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Most of us have heard of Superman ( Hi Caesar! ) but are you also aware that
    there is a SUPER MOON??? and it's hanging brightly and majestically over a
    night sky near you. This SUPER FULL MOON only occurs every 18 to 20
    years and tonight, March 19th. depending on the weather, you should be able to
    see our lunar friend in all of it's blazing moonglow glory, a rarely seen spectacle of
    illumination and size due to it's close proximity to our earth.

    I just took the below photo moments ago and thought you might enjoy seeing it.
    It's celestial reflective glow is sooooo luminous that it looks ELECTRIC and .....
    anybody wanna dance to the light of the silvery moon? hello???

    gzairborne,
    So happy to hear that you enjoyed the SUPER MOON photo. Tonight
    is the last official night that this once in a 20 year lunar event will light
    up the night sky with rarefied brilliance.

    Was out taking a few more not long ago, images below. Am also hoping
    for a few clouds to appear near the full moon to add some atmospheric
    ambiance to an additional image or two. Wish me luck!

    If anyone out there has a camera and is able to garner a SUPER MOON
    image in your part of the world, please feel free to post them here ......
    would love to see them.

    gzairborne,
    Depending on where we were world wise ... the SUPER MOON
    appeared much visually different depending on the weather and
    location. The weather here in Pennsylvania last night was
    overcast and a bit hazy though the lunar size did appear much
    larger and brighter than normal.
