Don't be surprised if the night sky seems a little brighter than usual this weekend. The moon will also look a lot larger than a typical night because, starting on Saturday, a so-called supermoon will be occurring.

Could be especially photogenic.

My plan is to attempt a few shots and see what happens! Hope the storms stay away

I'm going to try getting a few pictures too. Hope it's not too cloudy.

I tried yesterday at moon rise but too many clouds. Got up early for setting moon over the city and again too many clouds on horizon to see it.

I know it wont be a "supermoon" but might try some shots of the next full moon July 24ish or Aug 21.

Was nice and clear here.

I think this one came out a little better then the one I took last year.

Anyone else?

Great photo! For some reason every time I try to take a picture of the moon it seems to go horribly wrong. I didn't even try this year, but it look really cool when we were checking it out Sunday. When is the next? 14 or so years?

Def tell us what happened with your shot maybe we can help you out. Supermoons happen I think like every 400 or so days so there is a chance every year. However there is a full moon at least once a month you can practice on. Good tip is to shoot the moon when it's at the horizon or close to it as it appears to be bigger whether it's a supermoon or just a regular full moon.

Wow, that's a nice shot. My shots came out okay (I guess nice, I mean, they look like the moon at least and not a bright blur) after I figured out the settings. They aren't nearly as nice as that though. Did you add any layers or edit the picture?

I'm still in the amateur phase with my camera. I just started working with manual mode and I'm trying to learn all I can about it before I invest in a really nice camera with the works (lens, lighting, etc.)

I have pictures of how bright the moon was when it was behind the clouds. It looks almost like the sun and completely lit the entire beach with lots of light. It was beautiful.

No layers. Just converted from raw (also adjust for brightness / contrast / saturation in that step, though in this case didn't add any saturation or much contrast). Used an unsharp mask to bring out the details better and that's it.

Sounds like a good plan.

Looks nice there, can see some details not one of those that is just a white blob.

It's about that time again.

Ran across this:

Weather permitting, on Sunday, Nov. 13 and Monday, Nov. 14, you’ll be treated to a showstopper supermoon that will be the closest moon to Earth in almost 70 years.
