Supermoon: Your pictures

6 posts in this topic

Stargazers have been taking images of the spectacular 'supermoon' overnight. The phenomenon means the moon - which is classified as a 'perigee moon' by astronomers - appears bigger and brighter than usual because of its proximity to the earth. Some were lucky enough to also see the Perseid meteor shower which is caused by the Swift-Tuttle comet shedding part of its celestial body and leaving behind a trail of dust.

If anyone has taken pictures of the supermoon and would like to share, feel free to post them in this thread. :)

But I have an idea, why don't we make a thread for the Sept. full moon in advance? That seems to be the last Supermoon for the season. That way all can get their cameras ready.

I'm not sure starting a thread in advance would be beneficial. There wouldn't be much to post in it until September.

Here's a few more I've found -
