Perigee 'Supermoon' - July 24 2013. The actual full moon occurred the night before on the 23rd but I was clouded out for the horizon riser. I had to settle for the night after. To capture this shot I located camera (Olympus E3) on a tripod and composed the exact spot where the moon was due to rise (shortly after 10pm). I then took a succession of shots varying the exposure time until the moon rose through the pollution layer. This is why the moon appears golden/orange. To bring all the images together I stacked in software. Captured with Olympus E3, 50-200mm lens.
