The moonshine was extraordinary last year when “supermoons” appeared in the evening sky twice being closest to Earth in a long time, a phenomenon known scientifically as its “perigee”, not to be repeated until the year 2034.
Our first super moon began on October 16 however, prime viewing was only on November 14, 2016, when a Fall super moon called the “Harvest Moon” made itself the focus of our attention followed by the second “super full moon”, a much rarer super-duper version that happened on December 16, 2016.
My picture is that of the earlier or first version November 14, an exciting capture of this celestial event unfortunately not to be repeated in the December, it’s a nice shot of our satellite orb giving a very appealing glow or shine perhaps 30% brighter than normal.
The extra brightness is because of the massive glowing ring around its outer edge, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see and pretty special.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”SHINE”.
