Brightest light in the sky

By now everyone in Southern California is aware of the Supermoons that grazed the sky this weekend. Sunday, June 23 was the official date where the moon was going to be the brightest, even though it was difficult to tell from earlier in the weekend. Photographing the moon proved difficult because it rose later in the evening just after 8:30 p.m. The dark sky made it impossible for the camera to expose correctly for the moon and ambient light. In this case, I let the moon go bright so you could see part of the palm tree near my North Claremont home. Take a picture of the moon? Check out our Facebook page and post.
