Super Moon 2012

Yet another Super Perigee Moon was here to grace us with its beauty. The day, 5 May 2012. A moon that is more brighter than the average moon and also closer to earth. The moon rose at 16:56 and was approximately 357,016 Kilometers away from earth at the time. This picture is of the moon at 99.9% of being full.  The completely full moon occured at 05:35 on 6 May 2012. I also captured the 2011 Super Moon to be seen here. This Super moon image was taken in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
