A preview of the super moon

Moon watch

My cousin reminded me on FB that the super moon is coming up and I replied that I've marked the date. The moon is said to be nearest the earth and therefore the biggest we could see in 68 years and that will be tomorrow and the next day (Nov. 14 & 15). As I have nothing much to do today after some slight trimming of the grass on our lawn, I looked up the sky and saw a preview of how the moon would look like tomorrow. Because I've been busy with the coming home of my two daughters from NZ, it's been a while that I've been with my clicking hobby. Not wasting a minute, I took out my camera and had some shots of the moon, one of which is the photo attached above. I hope the weather will be fine tomorrow and the next day so that I can have some good captures of the super moon. Happy Sunday everyone!

Take off your shades so you'll see the moon better, Ms. Arbie :)

Oh it's that you're having a holiday tomorrow so you'll have time to gaze at the moon in the evening. What's the occasion for your holiday?

Happy Sunday my friend! I have read about it in Facebook. Are there any beliefs regarding the super moon? Anyway, today, I spent the day bonding with my mom

@sunrisefan Thank you. We cooked adobo and ginataang mais. The adobo was so so. Anyway, it can still be eaten. Then our ginataang mais transformed into a biko. We ran out of coconut milk.

@annierose Have not seen ginataang mais. Is that the corn on the cob?

I think it starts appearing before 6 tomorrow. I will be having then a meeting at the cooperative at 5:30 so I'm planning to bring along my camera. It's called super moon because it's the biggest the eye could see for the reason that it will be at its nearest distance to the earth.
