Don't think we didn't notice you posting a sun picture in the Moon thread. :P




I had a great moon shot on Thursday night, looked up just in time to catch it coming up over the mountain.

The perceived size of the moon on the horizon has to be the oldest trompe l'oeil known to humankind. 8)

So, what?  You think the moon never has sunspots?    ;)

Last night's moonrise was amazing.  I finished up an all day job, stepped out of a basement, and there was a gorgeous moon rising behind Mauna Kea.  Man I love living here!

If you look carefully at the shadow on the second and fourth exposures (left to right) you can see the blue band of the atmosphere.

The supermoon is a myth, it might be marginally bigger but you can't detect it with your eye.  It was only about 0.5% closer than the last full moon.

Well I feel it was bigger, so that's what's real for me.

It's not a myth, because it is closer. It's kind of overstated with the word "super".

HAH!  This moon was so super it caused a green flash as it rose off of the coast of Brittany, France:

Here is the stop-motion DSLR photographed video that caught the green flash.

Hells yes brother. 
I was told ahead of time that it was 2012 Super
and I believed it when I saw it.

My pic is bright and lamed to my location
but Um Yea,
The Maibock Moon 2012 was bulbous good.

Shucks, you missed out due to PhDanalylitisism. ;)

More proof of Superness:
Sun vs. Super Moon

(http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/1205/supermoon-unsupersun_csz.jpg)

The Super Moon wins, by just a little, when its apparent size is compared to the Sun in this ingenious composite picture. To make it, the Full Moon on May 6 was photographed with the same camera and telescope used to image the Sun (with a dense solar filter!) on the following day. Of course, on May 6 the Moon was at perigee, the closest point to Earth in its eliptical orbit, making it the largest Full Moon of 2012. Two weeks later, on May 20, the Moon will be near apogee, the most distant point in its orbit, so by then it will be nearly at its smallest apparent size. It will also be a dark New Moon on that date. And for some the New Moon will be surprisingly easy to compare to the Sun, because on May 20 the first solar eclipse of 2012 will be visible from much of Asia, the Pacific, and North America. Along a path 240 to 300 kilometers wide, the eclipse will be annular. Near apogee the smaller silhouetted Moon will fit just inside the bright solar disk.

Living on the windward (rainy) side of the island I have seen a few moonbows.  They are always an eerie experience.  Usually they are so dim that colors are lost.  Think a B&W rainbow.

A couple of times out on the lava flows, alone at night, they have appeared very dimly due to a small moon phase;  much like a ghostly apparition.  Talk about a chicken skin!  I know why Hawaiians believe in spirits.

okay, so this a little hard to see. I was going to make a pin hole viewer but come 6:30 I realized I forgot. d'oh. anyway I went out side to enjoy the odd light and noticed this in my garden. You might notice the bright nail pareing shaped spots on the ground here and there, well I have a big tree in my yard that was between us and the sun and I think what happened was that the holes between the leaves acted like lots of camera obscuras and gave me these images of the eclipse.

it was very cool, I only wish I was a better photographer and/or had a better camera than my phone.
