Perigee Moon

Last night the moon was the closest to earth it is going to be for another 18 years.  I had to take photos or at least try to capture it in photos.  I didn't have much luck last night.  But when I woke this morning, I was able to take some photos that I think turned out well.






The bright photo with the ring of light is one I took on auto setting.  The rest of the photos were taken on manual setting.  Because there is a slower shutter speed, you can see much more detail.

I took these photos on auto just before the moon set this morning.  There was enough light then for me to shoot these strictly on auto.  How beautiful it was!
