The first picture shows the oversize new Moon tonight (5th of May) above Stockholms Globe Arena making it look like a paler twin.
The second picture is a 270° panorama with the bright moon in the middle of the earth shadow that is the rising dark arch at the opposite side of the sun.

Super Moon to Super Moon by Radical Retinoscopy, on Flickr

The "Super Moon to Super Moon" graphic has been a side project that I have been working on for the past fourteen months.

At approximately each full moon (plus or minus a day because of weather) I photographed the moon using an identical set up as to photograph the true size of the lunar disc. Equipment was a Canon EOS t2i and a Sigma 70 to 300 mm lens at 300 mm. Exposures were 1/500 to 1/1250 a second according to cloud cover, transparency, etc. (f/5.6 was used throughout the entire project) The first lunar disc was photographed during the "Super Moon" of 2011. At the time this photo was taken the moon was 356816 km from Earth. On October 11, 2011 the lunar disc reached its minimum size as the lunar distance was 406417 km. Fourteen months after the 2011 "Super Moon" the 2012 Super moon was photographed at a lunar distance of 356959 km.

I am very thankful to live in the desert southwest of the United States during the completion of this project. I only encountered one night of significant cloud cover on the August 13, 2011 full moon. This could cover is typical during the summer monsoon season in Arizona. Fortunately the cover was light enabling a photograph of the lunar disc. If anyone is interested in a similar photo project my advice is to watch the focus ring on the zoom lens carefully! During the November 10 exposure the zoom ring slipped from 300 mm to 270 mm. I was doing the post-processing and nothing was making sense, I realized that the photos on this day were shot at 270 mm and were able to crop them to equal the size of the lunar disc that would be produced at 300 mm. All other full moon apparitions were without complications!

The size difference is minimal even between apogee and perigee. I will be using the images in this slide to make a short movie. The size difference becomes more apparent as the movie is viewed. Note: The image MUST be viewed large to really appreciate the size difference!

The 5th of May Super Moon captured among fast moving clouds that acted as natural filter during the exposure and created a beatiful colorful corona.

People on the Moon!

Temple of Poseidon, Sounio, Greece. The shot was taken with an 8 inch Dobsonian telescope. Well... Yes, it's true! You can actually take a photo with a dob!

Very nice images, the best I've seen so far. I like these much better than today's APOD.
Here are few of mine: Moonrise over San Francisco photographed on May 5,2012

Hi!
my contribution to this Supermoon gallery. First of all, don't miss this video of the whole sequence (one picture every 6 s):
https://vimeo.com/41670884

When it appeared at the horizon, it displayed a green flash (on the left, near the red beacon):

Then, it rose quickly:

Thank you for your attention! :o)
