Super Moon Photography

Fill the sky with light tonight! This month’s full moon called the Super Moon is also a perigee moon, meaning it is the closest that the moon comes to Earth during the satellite’s elliptical orbit. To boot, this year’s Supermoon, as it is known, comes right on the heels of the Summer Solstice, which happened on Friday June 21. You can still catch the super moon tonight. When the low hanging moon is near the horizon, it will appear larger. So the Super Moon will appear biggest to the naked eye on the U.S east coast during and just after the moonrise tonight over the Atlantic Ocean at:

Cocoa Beach, Florida: 8:41 p.m. EDT                                                      Miami, Florida:  8:34 p.m. EDT                                                          Charleston, South Carolina:  8:47 p.m. EDT                                               Virginia Beach, Virginia: 8:39 p.m. EDT                                                       New York City, New York: 8:40 p.m

For those planning a stroll along the beach to watch the Super Moon rise on Sunday night, this Full Moon brings along with it a 4-foot plus high tide that will occur around 8:42 p.m., with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location.
Get your cameras out and ready.
