Supermoon. Odense, 28th of September 2015 Nikon D800, Nikkor AF-S 80-400mm, f/4.5-5.6 G ED

Supermoon

A goof capture of the Supermoon (the technical name is “perigee syzygy”) we experienced a few weeks ago, the night between the 27th and the 28th of September 2015. Unfortunately, the meteorologic conditions didn’t allow shooting the following “Blood-Moon” during the lunar eclipse later that night.

A perigee is a full moon or a new moon that coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth. In its elliptic orbit, this results in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The most recent perigee occurrence was on June 24, 2017. The next one will be on December 3, 2017. The one on November 14, 2016 was the closest perigee since January 26, 1948. It will not be surpassed until November 25, 2034. The closest of the century will occur on December 6, 2052.
