Two nights ago, I was supposed to be in the perfect location to view and photograph the fantastic moonrise over Cincinnati. However, strong thunderstorms decided to upset those plans, so I remained indoors and dry. But, it was only a little more than two hours later, around 10 PM, that the clouds were clearing out and I’d be able to take a somewhat “super moon” pic or two. I wasn’t disappointed.
In four weeks, there will be a real “Super Moon” which is when the moon is closest to earth in it’s yearly orbit and directly after the full moon will be a total lunar eclipse which will be visible over the Eastern/Central U.S. Yes, we are in the perfect place for this coming total lunar eclipse, when only lights from earth will light up the moon, because the earth will block the Sun’s light and the moon will glow an orangish color. I can’t wait!
