Supermoon 2016

So last night there was much ado about the Supermoon — with the moon being the closest to Earth since January 1948.

I saw it on my way home from work and couldn’t wait to get home to the kids to view it with them.

Sam was already sending me messages to come home to view it with them at the playground. It was at its brightest by the time I got home.

Manuel set up the telescope before 8:52PM (when it was said that it will reach it’s maximum size).

The next time we’d have the moon close to earth again will be in 18 years on 25 November 2034. My boys would be ages 26 and 22 by that time. 😛

So here are a few shots we took. We’re no professionals obviously! Just want these as keepsakes for the kids and our time here in Vietnam. These shots weren’t easy. Have to be prepared for the next one in 2034. Hahaha!

Love our telescope. Although it ain’t that powerful, the moon looked awesome!

  2. What an amazing experience for your boys! I have a telescope too but it cannot take pictures like yours.
