For those of you who are following these types of things… This weekend there are two astronomical events.

The first is that the Moon is closer & thus brighter than usual.  Some are calling it a “Supermoon.”

The second is the Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower

Regardless, I went out tonight to shoot the moon here in Carbondale, IL.  There is plenty of light pollution here, but I was still able to manage a pretty great shot!  


Canon t1i, Canon 70-200 IS L 2.8 lens with the Canon 2x extender, shot at ISO 100, 400mm, f 16, 1/100th of a second.
