Reach for the supermoon
Super Moon in Socorro New Mexico
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
I set out to shoot the super moon over San Miguel de Socorro, in Socorro New Mexico.
It was a great night for it - perfect desert evening with temperatures in the high 50's and just a light bit of wispy cloud cover. I went out for a bike ride by the moonlight, looking for just the right shot. The church is a centerpiece in town, and has been since 1598. It's pretty by day, but it was simply amazing under the light of the supermoon. I spent a while looking for just the right angle, to get the moon just where it should be. Finally I got down, laying on the pavement and found the shot that I was looking for.
