MaxSez: The last full moon of 2017 is going to appear a little bigger and brighter than most in the Northern Hemisphere tonight, Dec. 3, 2017. The evening will bring a supermoon, meaning a full moon that happens at perigee ― the same time in the lunar cycle that the moon is closest to the earth. (A new moon at perigee is also sometimes called a supermoon, but those aren’t visible from Earth.) On this particular occasion, the moon will appear 7 percent larger and 16 percent brighter than usual. Not only will this be the only full supermoon of 2017, it’s also going to kick off a series of three full supermoons in a row. The full moons on Jan. 2 and Jan. 31 not only will be super moons, they’ll be blue super moons — a “blue moon” meaning the second full moon in a single month. (Pls consider adding your photo of these Super Moons with your physical location & Type, actual or IF, to this Topic at your pleasure.) **Will these Super Moons appear in the IF Sky?**Thanks & Regards All
Great insight!! Thanks Max
So anywhere in the northern hemisphere there will be a giant moon!?
That was taken in Geneva. I’ll try taking one in real life there tonight.
@OJFam. MaxSez: LOCATION PLS. Thanks
@Maxmustang runway 22R at my home airport of KJFK.
Won’t the super moon of January 31st be a lunar eclipse to some? That’s what I read. Should be great to see.
Will supermoon in IF available on Solo mode?
That can’t be in IF. It looks perfect
It wasn’t personal camera
@Spencer_Chapman… Interesting. If you have access to a Lunar Grafic for Jan31 depicting partial eclipse regional coverage pls post here. Thanks, Max
Unless you can use a Nikon in IF.
Oh well. Just figured it were IF related, since it otherwise would be completely unrelated.
@ouzi…MaxSez: the answer to your question will I’ll be revield tonight. Open Solo mode after moon rise tonight and compare, I will. Don’t forget to take a pic of tonites natural view and post it here by location. Regards
Ok, Sure . I’ll Do it
I’ve tried to take a photo in real life to compare, unfortunately my camera is uncharged.
But the moon looks amazing just like in infinite flight!
Nothing here in Southern Africa.
