Well the skies were clear and I got a really beautiful shot of the Full Strawberry Moon and the distant wanderer Saturn rising over the trees in the southeastern sky.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, the Full Strawberry Moon is the farthest (smallest) full moon of the year because Luna has reached it's lunar apogee -- the farthest point in its monthly orbit. This is also known as the micro-moon, or mini-moon.
Every year, the micro-moon often returns about one month and 18 days later with each passing year, meaning that, in 2018, the year’s smallest full moon will come on July 27.
I hope you enjoyed my night sky photography, and as always keep your eyes on the night skies, y'all.
