Supermoon Over Denver

This Week’s Photo – Supermoon Over Denver

Lets just say this astronomical phenomena ¬†was a little disappointing. The claim was that the moon last night was going to be the biggest moon we have seen in nearly two decades – too bad it was a hazy night in Denver AND technically the moon was at its biggest at 1 o’clock in the afternoon.Yes, this is a composite photograph. But it is impossible to take a night skyline picture and have a moon perfectly exposed and in focus. Even if the shutter is only open for 10-15 seconds, your moon will be blown out and blurred.
