SUPERMOON ARRIVING

Uploaded by: Ralfo

Thursday June 20, 2013

Yonkers, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Full moon falls on June 23, 2013 at 11:32 UTC (6:32 a.m. CDT in the U.S.). Thus, for many, the moon appears about as full in the June 22 evening sky as it does on the evening of June 23. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014. In other words, it’s not just a supermoon. It’s the closest supermoon of 2013.

When I first saw the pic I thought Canon SX40HS. I was wrong it's a Canon SX50HS even better!I just got my 40HS the other day and took a shot last night as well.Very similiar results hand held full zoom. Great Pic Ralf and you have to love that 50 X.
