Supermoon Rise

Tonight’s Supermoon was a spectacular sight rising above the ridges here in the Algarve Serra. The scene didn’t quite turn out like I hoped, it was darker than I thought it would be, but still managed to get a shot of the moon just rising above one of the ridges.

This is the only Supermoon of 2018 and is when the Moon is the closest to Earth at a distance 357,495km. This full Moon of December is also called the Cold Moon as it’s the first Full Moon of the winter. There is another Supermoon scheduled for 2nd January 2018 and even another on 31st January 2018 although the latter is also a total Lunar eclipse for north-western North America, the Pacific, Asia, and Australia.
