I took this photo of the perigee moon (or super moon) on 9-28-15 @ 1:57 a.m. EST.  I couldn’t sleep.  My mom had died in hospice the day before.  My mind wouldn’t turn off – so many things to do and not sure where I should even start.  I knew it was going to be a super moon and that it was going to undergo an eclipse.  I decided to sit on the deck and watch it.  It must have been a chilly night; I don’t really remember.  I just remember sitting outside watching the moon.  As the eclipse started, the clouds moved in.  And then it cleared.  The clouds came and went.  I decided to go in and get the camera.  I might as well do something rather than just sit and watch – which is never my style.  I grabbed the Canon PS SX60HS – first camera that came to hand.  Sitting in the chair, I kept balancing the camera on the table and taking pot shots at the moon.  Why would I even think to bring the tripod out for this type of shooting?  After about 30-45 minutes of watching, shooting, and fiddling with the camera, I got enough shots that my mind had cleared, I could settle myself, and get some sleep.  If you want more technical information about this perigee moon, here goes.  “The September 27-28, 2015 moon is full moon – a super moon – the Harvest Moon – and it’s going to undergo an eclipse!  In September 2015, the moon sweeps to perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth for the month – on September 28 at 1:46 UTC. That is September 27 at 8:46 p.m. CDT. This month’s moon at its perigee lies 356,877 kilometers (221,753 miles) from Earth. It’s the moon’s closest point to Earth for all of 2015.  The year’s closest perigee is sometimes called the moon’s proxigee.  And there’s more. About one hour after the September 27-28 lunar perigee, the moon will reach the crest of its full phase. That’ll happen at 2:51 UTC. The very close coincidence of perigee and full moon will showcase not only the closest supermoon of 2015, but also a lunar eclipse on night of September 27-28.  Plus, it’s the Harvest Moon for us in the Northern Hemisphere!”  Source: Earth/Sky
