Supermoon!



I snapped this photo at around 08:46 PM of March 19, 2011. An hour after, there were thick layer of cumulus clouds that covered the sky. The moon was so big and glistening so brightly on the ground than a  normal full moon. As always, my ever reliable camera with 300mm zoom macro lens didn't disappoint me. I cropped this photo by 25% to show some details.

According to NASA, this super perigee moon was the biggest in almost 20 years. Click here for more info.

Word of the day: qamar is the Arabic word for moon. Salaam!

  3. If the moon could smile as how kids draw it, it would have shown here along with it's details :-)

    Naalala ko lang, sa laki ng moon, sabi ng anak ko, may monster daw. Sus! :-)
