Perigee Moons of 2014

July 12, 2014 What a year it has been for skywatchers. The night sky was ablaze with three perigee moons and two blood moons. It was a challenge to get a photo of la pleine lune  with my simple IPhone camera. I wanted to record a "bigger than life" moon (that's why they're called supermoon) but the zoom feature couldn't really do the job. (I need a DSLR camera.) Here are some impressions from my IPhone and IPad cameras anyway. August 10, 2014, early evening August 10, 2014, against the black of night September 9, 2014 I missed the blood moon and the lunar eclipse on October 8th. Below is a photo I took from the park during my late afternoon walk on the 7th. October 7, 2014  Obviously I was over the moon to have witnessed these natural phenomena.
