First Glimpse of the Supermoon

Waiting for the Supermoon to rise into view this evening, I was driving a golf cart around the course, looking for the best location I could find. The official rising time of 5:26pm had passed, but I did not have a clear view of the flat horizon. Killing time, I clicked a few photos of a great blue heron.

I kept checking the alignment of my shadow, to make sure I was looking for the moon rising in the right location, and suddenly… there it was, and it DID indeed look big.

My first glimpse of the Supermoon, rising on January 30, just after 5:30pm as the sun set. It was both a blue moon and supermoon.

This was one of those moments that I wish a friend or family member was at my side to share the excitement. “There it is!” I murmured to myself.
