Not the Supermoon
I wish I could say that I took this on Saturday when it was the Supermoon. But it became very cloudy right during the time the moon was to rise and despite driving round and round Greensboro, I never saw the moon at its biggest and brightest.
This was taken Friday evening as a test shot. I drove over to an industrial area west of Greensboro where there wasn't much in the way of street lights and overhead telephone and electric wires so I could get a clear view of the moon. I used the car door to steady my hands, took a deep breath and got some terrific shots. But it is not the Supermoon and it is only 99% full (as if anyone could tell the difference).
