Bella Luna

Published on 8th August 2014

Do not miss out!

AUGUST 10. 2014

It takes 28 days for the moon to orbit the earth on an elliptical rugby ball shaped path. Every 13 months and 8 days a proxigee or Super Moon align with the Full Moon so that it appears about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an average full moon.

The effect is amplified by an optical illusion so that it seems unnaturally large.

It’s a great opportunity for both amateurs and professional photographers to get out their tripods and cameras and to try and capture the amazing sight of the Bella Luna. Let’s hope there is no cloud.
