Skywatch Friday - Perigee Moon

For once the clouds cleared out and gave me a nice view of the super moon last Saturday night.

Excellent pics, Sally.
Your fist pics looks like mine and I really like the second.--We must be in the same part of the world. LOL MB

Terrific captures, Sally!! Thick cloud cover here when the moon came up, so I got up early to try and catch it as it was setting. By the time I got my camera and got up to the deck, it had disappeared again behind the next layer of clouds! Bummer!! Hope you have a great weekend!

GORGEOUS! You got a much better shot than we did, but I'm happy I got to see it at all! As you said, it could have been cloudy and then we would have missed out completely.

Thank you for the Stylish Blogger Award! :-)

I can't remember when we last saw the moon. I'll just have to look at the shots from other bloggers.

Fantastic full moon shots, Sally! We'e had cloudy skies and rain/hail/snow in norCal almost continually for 3 weeks, so we didn't see the full moon.

Beautiful details, - I tried in vain to get the texture of the surface, but no luck without a tripod. This is lovely, - thank you.

Really nice super moon shots. Mine did not turn out well at all. But it was nice sitting out on the dock in shorts -- and with bare feet!
