Reports saying that this is the time where the moon is nearer to the earth , some even concluded that there would be natural calamities everytime a ' Super ' moon occurred.

I will take a look at it. If it is close enough, I might pluck it off the sky. So before I do that, say your goodbyes to the moon. It may be missing from your skies.

In reality your teacher is right. The sun rises when it is dark to illuminate the darkness. The moon rises when it is daytime but you can only see it when it is dark.

It has nothing to do with the school. It is the students that did not get it. :)

IIRC, that will be around the time when the moon is highest in the sky. ;)
?IIRC?

I took some shots at 9+ but I might have been too late. It usually seems biggest at 6ish/7 (to me that is) :bsmilie:

Anyone got any nice shots from tonight? (or last night?)

IIRC is an acronym for If I Recall Correctly.

The moon will be seen larger nearer towards the horizon due to an optical illusion and not because it is closer to Earth. Also there will be less atmospheric turbulent disturbance for the light from a celestial object to pass through to the observer if it was higher in the sky thus making it seems clearer too.

Very clear shots! :) I think I can see fairies and rabbits jumping around too. :bsmilie:

What's your setup?

The furthest I can go is 300mm. :bsmilie:

Fairies can be seen better without all that smog blurring them out. :bsmilie: I see now. :) :)

Thanks for your compliment, shot on 50D at 400mm, handheld tahan on the corridor pillar. Aperture priority f 11 if i remember correctly, ISO 100.
