Monday, 14th November 2016 … The day The Super Moon was shining in all it’s glory the World Over. With many alerts being sent via various social media platforms, notifying people to keep their eye peeled on the night sky to witness this Spectacular Display by Nature. This phenomenon of “SUPER MOON” was the Largest, Closest and Brightest FULL MOON to be witnessed in Over 65 years, Due to its Orbital Path.
However, some parts of Johannesburg had a bit of Cloud cover last night, so watching the Super Moon Rise was not possible for some. I ‘oohed’ and ‘aahed’ as I watched pictures surface from different parts of the World, hoping I too got the opportunity to witness this spectacle. So my wishful thinking was granted after all, when just before retiring to bed that evening, I decided to peep out the windows and to my joy, there shone the ‘Super Moon’ down in all it’s brilliance. In my part of the Country, the Super Moon didn’t look as Large as I hoped, But was most definitely the Brightest I’ve seen to date, and it definitely was Spectacular to watch, as the overcast sky on the Eastrand of Johannesburg, danced with life at night.
Here is a short Photoblog of some of the pics I managed to capture, all in 10 -15 minutes before the glorious Super Moon was finally swallowed by the threatening rain clouds, just before we had another thunderstorm, moments after clicking the last of these pics.
Closing Inspiration from Foodeva Marsay
“Aim to to SHINE like a Rare Super Moon, instead of the countless twinkling Stars that shine Everyday”
