Did you know the Supermoon was Sunday night. Do you know what the Supermoon is? It's the the combination of a full moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its orbit. This results in the moon appearing the biggest it possibly can to us.
Want to impress your friends? Use the technical name (perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system).
Believe it or not the moon is not hard to photograph. I zoom lens helps a lot but the moon is very bright and if you expose for the surface of the moon, you can get a very clear image.
