The Super Moon

Did you see the moon last night?  They called it the Super Moon.  It was the closest a full
 moon will be to the earth during 2012!  14% bigger and 30% brighter, it was certainly
 one to catch your attention!  I went out at 11:40 P.M. EST to take some pictures!
 


Here it is above the trees in our yard.


And a little closer look with a 26X zoom.


Just lovely!
I had really weird dreams last night. 
 Could it have been the moon?  ha.

    4. yes...but you know, I might have missed it but Silver was the one that told me it was a special one...bigger and brighter. So, I have to give him the credit. I'm so glad, too, because it really was big and bright!

  4. Oh I am so good! When I saw that we were going to have a super moon I thought "I'll bet Betsy will blog about it" :) It was cloudy here so we couldn't see it. I was dissapointed! I slept like a log, a bear, a dog in the sun........anyway I slept hard and dreamed little. :)

  11. Great shots as you stayed up late
    Down at your gate
    To catch the moon
    Which was never known by this loon
    I went to bed way before that
    But also had weird dreams at my mat
    Can't remember all of it
    But it was weird bit by bit
    I'll blame the moon too
    For it coming due

    1. yes the moon
      can make you dream like a loon!
      Don't have to worry about missing a glance
      because I'll show you what you missed perchance
      Usually notice the moon at my shore
      and make sure I share my photos and more.
      You went to bed early and slept late
      the way you spend a Sunday is great! ha.

    2. haha yeah nice and relaxing Sunday it was indeed
      At my feed
      Making the neck feel better through the sleep
      And not taking a leap
      Never have to fear missing the moon
      Or some jumping of some spoon
      For you catch it all
      There at your hall

    1. Oh, shoot! I think it might have been seen if you went out later...as it got higher. That's how it was here. We had nothing compared to some countries where it looked orange and enormous, though!

  22. We were at the cottage for 3 days...:o)...I left the blinds up in our bedroom, as the Full Moon was in all it's glory over Lake Erie...Love when it shines in the bedroom all night...and if you have to make a middle-of-the-night trip downstairs....it helps guide your way!!...no falling down he stairs at 4am!!! I tried to take a few pic, but to no avail :o( will try again next month...

    Great Post...
    Cheers
    Linda :o)
