    Amber Super Moon Over New York City

    As a photographer and astronomer, a full Moon is typically nothing to get excited about for me unless it's going to be somehow unique, such as in color. For photos it's better to get the Moon when It's not full so that the shadows fall across the features making it easier to see every tiny ridge and crater.

    But when I saw the Super Moon come up amber tonight due to the light haze we were experiencing, I had to capture the color. And so I grabbed my camera and took this shot out my kitchen window while sitting on the floor.

    To capture the color, I used slightly different settings than I usually would for a Moon shot: ISO 200, f11, 1/30, 135mm.
