Perigee Moon

The Perigee Moon, or also known as the "Wolf Moon", according to Native American tradition.

Last night I was on my way home from a run when I saw this GI-NORMOUS moon coming up over the horizon. It was absolutely gorgeous!

This moon is 30% brighter and 14% larger than any other full moon this year because it is closest to the earth. Just a little FYI.

This moon was so bright that it looked like a big white blob on some of my photos.


  1. **Just so everyone knows, tonight it is supposed to be spectacular! So go out around 5:30pm and you should see a fabulous sight!**

  2. Shannon, I finally had a chance to look at your blog--these are amazing! Not only the wild life that you had the unique opportunity to capture, repeatedly; but also the skill with which you captured them! Breath-taking! I love how you see the beauty in everything, including the frost-covered weeds. The sunrises are stunning. Wow, wow, wow. Thanks soooooo much for sharing these! --Tini
