Artist's Description

The “Supermoon” of March 19, 2011. A “supermoon event” occurs when lunar perigee (the nearest point of the moon’s orbit) coincides with either a full or new moon (lunar syzygy). The 2011 supermoon was the closest perigee in 18 years, and the closest that perigee and syzygy had occurred together (about one hour) in longer than that. Moonrise occurred within 15 minutes of sunset at this latitude, so I was able to get one shot still partially illuminated by daylight. Ten minutes and a few seconds after the first glow on the horizon (and 8:56 after this shot), it was full dark and the moon was well above the horizon. (See: SuperMoon III)
