Weekend Snapshot: The Supermoon

Nope.  It's not a name of a super hero.  When we heard about the word 'supermoon', my cousin and I thought it was kind of a lunar eclipse.  We're wrong.  It is a term for the moon's brightest moment because it is closer to Earth than usual.  I took some moon photos this evening.  My husband was in the back porch and called me to see the beautiful bright moon.

Taken about 3x zoom
Taken with 12x maximum zoom in Night Snapshot without flash
Taken in 12x maximum zoom in macro without flash
It's hazy this evening so not much of a clarity.  There should be a halo of colors around it, but I don't have a DSLR camera.  I took these supermoon photos through Canon Digital Elph.  And this is my entry to Blog Photo Challenge.

I was asleep when this moon appeared. Too bad, I should have stayed awake all night. It might throw me some lucky fortune sooner or later in life.
