POTD: Sturgeon Moon 2009

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been digging around in some old photos. I stumbled across this…apropos for the month. Full illumination for the August 2009 moon occurred at 8:54pm EDT on the 5th. I almost nailed the day! I did a 2018 post and a post last year. I didn’t take this one. This shot is much clearer than what my stupid-phone can come up with. It belongs to my buddy Ray and he doesn’t remember where he took it. The upcoming full moon will be full on the 22nd at 8:02am EDT. ~Vic

    I can never get a good shot of the moon so I’m awe of those who can.

    That is some great detail. On most phones the moon comes out blurry.

        I love the detail and you can see the formations on the moon.

          I was really surprised at how clear it was. I will be playing with this Nikon some more.

            It worked without the blur but I do like the blur on some pictures

              A blur can be really cool. My first stupidphone (S5) actually took better pictures than this S7.

                I wish I would have gotten a true Iphone 12…I got an iphone 12 SE…which is the cheaper model of course. I’ve seen those pics from the 12…they are great.
