According to http://www.perthnow.com.au/technology/super-moon-photos-light-up-the-internet/story-fnjww4h7-1227020012354 there is a supermoon due tonight.

This means the full moon will be closer to the earth's surface so great opportunity for moon photos tonight.

Wednesday night astronomers are expecting a series of shooting stars.

Me thinks time to get camera gear ready.

For Perth is peaked at 2:10 this morning. We had a bit of cloud cover, so not so bright.

Here is a graphic representation of what the moon and adjacent stars will look like adjacent to one another as seen from Perth at 6:00pm Perth time.

At the moon hasn't risen of course you can't see it yet, but you know what I mean.



I have included a grab of some info on the moon, including the time it rises.

Cheers
Alan

Did everyone go and check the supermoon? Didn't see anything different? It's not you, it's the media.

Supermoons must be one of the most over-hyped recent media inventions around - and there are a lot these days.

There are about 3 - 4 supermoons each year. The Next one is .....wait for it. September 9, and guess what it is bigger than the one this month.

Oh and they are so big, about 5% bigger than average and can't be detected as larger by most people. I got caught by this a couple of years ago and went out to a great spot on the bay to photgraph it along with lots of others. No one could tell any difference, it is the same every time.
