Only Super Moon in 2014 is August 10

This is the only Super Moon in 2014. A Super Moon is when the Full Moon coincides when the Moon is closest to the earth. It will rise at 8/10 at 7:39PM at 172 degrees ESE. This is 8 degrees shy of due South.

We may move as a group to Friederichs Avenue and try to shoot the moonrise over the lagoon. Sorry for the late notice, I thought this event was later in the month. If you would like tips on shooting the moon, see this link:

If you would like to see a calendar of Moon rise and set and direction, see this link:

I suggest you bring something to steady your shot, either a Tripod or a Monopod.

    I never photographed the moon (or in the dark). I think my camera isn't suited. I've only had two photography courses, so I am a real beginner. I'm really interested to see this moon and to see how you guys work your (camera) magic. See you later!

      Chris, the moon should be very bright if the clouds cooperate. Glad you able to join us.

      As long as your camera has adjustable settings, like shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings, you should be able to shoot in the dark, so to speak. The moon is so bright that you actually use daylight settings to get a good exposure. f8 at 1/125 sec will get you close!

    The moon rises in the east. Tonight it will rise at around 102*, just south of due east, not 172*. Plan accordingly!

      Thanks Hew. We'll adjust.
