    Super Moon over the Hunter

    Short notice, I know, but just making my fellow Hunter AP members aware that the Super Moon will rise tonight and I plan on being out there to get a shot!

    For those interested, I will be shooting from the Swansea-Belmont surf club at Blacksmiths Beach, purely because the Photographer's Ephemeris says the Super Moon should rise right behind Moon Island! Now that's an event I wouldn't like to miss capturing.

    Of course I could have kept my plans to myself, but that's not my nature. Anyone care to join me?

    Just to whet the appetite of any Hunter APers who may be thinking of joining me, here are scouting shots of the 3 possible locations for this evening's shoot.

    North Blacksmiths Beach viewing platform looking south east to Moon Island.

    Blacksmiths main beach beside surf club looking east south east to Moon Island.

    Reid's Mistake headland looking due east to Moon Island.

    Note that the first two locations are preferred for moonrise today. Reid's Mistake reserve is locked at 5:30pm which doesn't leave much pack up time after the moon hits its peak at around 5:12pm.

    PS. I will be at the main beach surf club car park from around 4:30pm.
