February’s Full Moon

This month’s full moon officially occurred today, February 19th, at 10:53 a.m. EST.

Since we were to cloud over this afternoon for the incoming early morning snow, my plans looked thwarted for tonight’s rising of the Super Moon at sunset.

We did, however, have clear skies this morning, so instead I photographed the full moon setting at sunrise.

The setting moon still gave a nice show this morning as the sun began to rise.

  1. I’m jealous! We were on the way home from the airport as I saw a hazy moon behind clouds. However last night in San Francisco I saw the full moon rising and it was superb – and of course I had no camera with me as we were in a car So I’m glad you got these beautiful pictures!

  2. Thank you for sharing your images of the super moon, these are truly beautiful.

  3. It is luminescent, Donna. It was snowing last night, but I caught a brief glimpse this morning as the moon was disappearing behind the mountains. It was still gorgeous, but I only made photographic memories.

  4. Well, shucks. I totally missed out on this event somehow. Just wasn’t paying attention, I guess. But you made up for it by posting these delightful shots. Way to go, Donna! πŸ˜€

  5. Fantastic photos Donna! I saw the supermoon here in Tasmania but I couldn’t get any decent photos. I think it’s time to upgrade my camera! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Sue! I had a difficult time trying to get a descent focus along with the sailboat masts being focused with my zoom lens. My wide angle just didn’t do the moon justice. Glad you still got to enjoy it at your home!
