Tonight’s Very Large “Super Moon” as Seen From South Boston.

I photographed tonight’s so called “Super Moon” from the Fish Pier in Southie. I needed some type of scale to show how big the orange, reddish moon was at moonrise. I lucked out. The Spirit of Boston was cruising by just at the right time. The photo was snapped with a Canon 800mm lens 2000ASA with a shutter speed of 1/60th and an aperture of f5.6. The moon is the closest to the earth while being full, hence the largest, in almost 20 years. Check Sunday’s Boston Herald for more.
