On Sunday, June 23, 4:00 a.m. Arizona time, the moon will be at its closest point to earth (called perigee). The moon will appear about 12 percent larger in the sky at its fullest and closest. It was advised by a few photo experts to capture the super moon at sunset, so I set up my tripod in my front yard, attached my 70-200 telephoto lens to the tripod, set the ISO at 100-200, the aperture at F11-F14 and shutter speed at 1/250.  I captured the following photo around 9:00 p.m. Arizona time.  My goal for early a.m. on June 23 is to try to capture more photos when the super moon is 99.9% full moon and that will be at 4:33 a.m. on June 23. No guarantee this will happen IF I sleep in! Stay tuned or NOT!
