My Sunday Photo: 7 January 2018

SupermoonOn New Year’s Day there was a so-called ‘supermoon’. This is when the moon appears larger because it is at a point where it is closest to the Earth. It is interesting that the Moon’s orbit is not, in fact, a perfect circle with the Earth at its centre! The Moon’s mean distance from us is about 384,400 kilometres. However, this can vary between around 356,400 km and 406,700 km! On this occasion it was about 363,300 km away and so was quite spectacular when the sky was clear!

It's kind to share!

  1. Amazing photo, I’m loving all the moon themed photos in #mysundayphoto this week! I cheated with a fake moon as I’m rubbish at capturing the real thing.

  3. Absolutely stunning. Thank you so much for sharing. Fingers crossed the skies are clear on the 31st for another super moon and a blue one at that.
