About Today’s Photo:

Last night’s full “Beaver” moon (so-called by Northeast Native Americans and Colonial Americans) was an honest-to-goodness “super moon”. The moon was at perigee yesterday (its closest postion to the earth in its eliptical orbit) and closer than it’s been in January 26, 1948. It was some 14% larger and 30% brighter than at apogee. Thin clouds were starting to drift in as I took this shot, so the definition and colors are a bit muted.
