I’m sure everyone knows there was a supermoon last week, May 5, to be exact. Last time there was a supermoon all we saw was snow. This time around the sky was a bit clearer, but we had to catch our glimpses during the few brief moments the clouds parted.
The sky was certainly brighter from my vantage point on the couch. Matt’s camera battery was dead so he used mine to try and snap a shot–but the clouds didn’t really cooperate.
One of Matt’s pics — he said I could share.
I guess we’ll have to wait ’till June 23, 2013, to give it another shot. Hopefully all the snow and rainclouds are done and gone by then!
On a related note, I had no idea all full moons have names, not just the Harvest Moon. From what I can gather, this moon would have been the Planting Moon, or Milk Moon. (I kind of think November’s Beaver Moon is awkwardly named.)
Did you see the supermoon?
