APOD: Full Moon over Brno (2016 Sep 16)

Post by APOD Robot » Fri Sep 16, 2016 4:10 am

Image Full Moon over Brno

Explanation: After sunset this gorgeous full moon rose over Brno city in the Czech Republic on July 20, 2016. The panoramic image was made during a celebration of the 47th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. A series of exposures captures the yellow hued lunar disk against the fading colors of twilight, with the 14th century Spilberk castle illuminated in the foreground. Of course, tonight's full moon is called the Harvest Moon. The closest full moon to the northern hemisphere's autumnal equinox, its traditional name has long been celebrated in story and song. Tonight's full lunar phase also coincides with a subtle, penumbral lunar eclipse, the Moon passing only through the Earth's diffuse, outer shadow.

I just read an exciting story in the Washington Post about the SuperMoon! And an Eclipse! Moronic stories such as this appear regularly in WaPo, unfortunately.

July 20th, 2016? Is Brno in a vastly different time zone?

I shall see the Moon tonight, but only with my binoculars...as my new scope is going back to Meade for a replacement and is all packed. Nice scope...too bad it had a finding problem, everything off.

Really great shot, hope my view is good tonight.
