Hey, sorry for the delay in uploading the photos of the Supermoon on March 19, 2011. I’d like to extend a special thanks to my mom for lending me her camera. Without it, we’d never have captured such unbelievable photographs. So thanks mom!

I thought we wouldn’t get the photo as the moon took so long to rise, so Joe started shooting the photos through the trees. My shoulder served as a tripod.

Those damn trees! Why’d they have to grow so high? I was so upset as I’d been waiting for this night for weeks and it seemed that once the moon cleared the treetops it would be covered by the clouds.

Oh my God! The clouds blew away and we had the moon to ourselves. Unbelievable! You can actually see a meteor impact on the lower right side and see the spray of moon dust extending away.

Another photo. The clarity stunned me and I hope you enjoy them as well. Thanks again, mom.

    These photos are really good, but the top two photos are amazing. The 1st photo is simply incredible, it is so many different things in one. They will make great art prints.

    I really loved watching the Super Moon last week. Even the bright lights of London could not shut it out! But my photos were no way near as good…

    Great pics you two! They’re beautiful. Very Twilight-ish. I’m a sucker for all things Twilight.
