2d Full Moon for July 2015 Coming Soon

Practice Early



The full moon happens again on the 31st of this month.

So, I went out tonight and started plotting my shots for the night of the big event.

moonrise over Okukubi River

One position that would be nice is, where the Okukubi River meets the ocean.

Figuring out the right time to be in position is one thing.

Getting to spot the moon rising at this point, is another thing, altogether.

Here's another shot from the same location, with a Nature Mirai sign in the frame.

From this position, I walked back up river and, headed back into Kin Town.

Shooting images, all the way, it was dark before I got to the office.

The cameras are downloaded and, batteries charging so, we'll be ready tomorrow. 

That will give me one more night to decide where the night of  the full moon will be spent.


This is what the moon looks like with a zoom lens tonight. Not quite round.

The Blue Moon (2d full moon of this month) will occur Friday July 31 at 7:42PM, in Japan.
