Full Moon

June 22, 23, 2013

The recent full moon was called a super moon because the moon is at its perigee, which is the closest point to the earth in its elliptical orbit.  At this time the moon is supposed to appear 14% larger, but is really not noticeable without a comparison reference.  The first four photos were taken on a Phoenix Camera Club outing to Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona.  The last two were near Phoenix, AZ but a cloud bank soon obscured the moon after rising.  The photos are double exposures, since the range of light is so great between the moon and the landscape.
