Supermoon [Explored]

I dedicate this photo to my love Galya.

 

Tonight is one of rare phenomena called supermoon. I have photographed it right away from my balcony. Supermoon happens when the Moon is at its closest point to the Earth while circling around its orbit. The last time Supermoon has been observed 20 years ago. Today the Moon is 50 000km (30 000 miles) closer to the Earth and will appear 30% brighter. Indeed the Moon was quite bright.

 

Equipment: Canon 50D, Canon EF-S 18-200 mm F3.5-5.6 IS
