Night Owl


I was on spring break last week (how awesome is it that I still get spring break?!) and was determined to get out there and practice using my camera. I got as far as my deck. ha!


Above, is the city view from my deck. I love it.

 The helpful folks on our local new station announced that the moon was going to be in perigee to the earth over the weekend. I, like many photo folks, decided that I was going to take a picture of the "supermoon". Unfortunately, we had some mild and annoying storms move in and I thought there was no way I would get to see it.
And this is where the night owl part comes in. You see, I am a natural night owl that is forced to live like a morning person in order to make a living. On long breaks like the one I had last week, my penchant for 2 am nights reasserts itself. This time it came in handy and I was able to get some frankly somewhat "meh" photos of the supermoon as the storm clouds were breaking up. I could hardly tell the difference between a regular moon and the super one we were supposed to see that night, but I'm glad I stayed up late!

What's perigee mean? I like the pics.

Oh it means that the moon is at its closest to the earth in its orbit - so that meant it was supposed to look really big! It didn't seem so to me that night, but the next night it did look really big!!

Sometimes it is so hard to find good and useful posts out there when doing research. Now I will send it to my colleagues as well. Thank you for being one of them.
