Super Moon

This was last night’s full moon as viewed from the flatlands of the Midwest, where I’m currently traveling.  Scientists say tonight’s moon will appear at its closest position to earth in 18 years, creating a “Supermoon.”

The moon was close enough so that I was able to capture this image using a Canon 70-200mm zoom lens with a 2x tele-extender, giving me a 400mm lens. The light was so bright that I was able to shoot at a shutter speed of 1/1200th of a second at f: 5.6.

(Photo updated March 20 because wrong photo was used in this post.  A man my age should not use his laptop without his reading glasses while traveling.)
