On the nights of November 13th and 14th, a new kind of history was made. Since 1948, the moon was closest to the Earth not only making it a noticable 7% bigger, but immensely brighter. This “supermoon,” was nothing to get “super-hyped” about, unless you are a photographer, sky gazer, or if you live along the coast. The moon has always been a great opportunity for photographers to practice their astrophotography skills, but the brighter sky made these nights a special time to get a tremendous shot. Lunar trackers also may appreciate this extraordinary event. The only people who may not be able to enjoy the beauty of the supermoon would be people who live close to the ocean, due to the detrimental outcomes of high tides in the water.
Even though some people may have had a negative experience through this extravaganza, the beauty and history left an impact on all to see.
