The Supermoon of March 19, 2011
This weekend’s “Supermoon” takes place thanks to a fluke of orbital mechanics that brings the moon closer to Earth than that it has been in more than 18 years. At its peak, the Supermoon of March 19, 2011 may appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon.
Not Quite the Supermoon; But Close
Mistaking the bright moon the night before the actual Supermoon, I walked up and down the street I live on in San Francisco my tripod pointed towards the sky.
The whole time, brightly lit white clouds floated past a deep blue sky. I guess I didn’t think about how it might appear to my neighbors; a stranger taking photos of houses with a tripod on their quiet street in the dark.
So if any of my fellow residents of Delmar Street are reading this, these are the results of that random guy taking photographs of your house.
Delmar is the quiet and friendly tree-lined street in the Upper Haight neighborhood of San Francisco that I call home.
