Almost Full Moon Over Okinawa AUG 8 2017
This is about as round as I've seen it get during the month of August this year.
The local moon phases calendar, says the moon was full at 03:10 this morning.
As I was walking the dog home, from buying my coffee, I saw the moon setting.
About 5 AM and the skies were hazy but, it looked like the moon was going to hit the highway.
Tonight, I climbed up on the roof and was waiting for moonrise at 7:30 PM.
It appeared shortly after I set the camera up, surrounded by fast moving black clouds.
There were 60 photos in the camera, when I stopped shooting and downloaded.
Tonight, I'll just post this one and, another on my Facebook Page, Ryukyu Life.
The remaining images, I may use to create a slideshow, showing the moving clouds.
All photos were taken, using a tripod and the camera timer at 2 or, 12 seconds.
Various exposure settings were used, depending on the brightness of the moon.
For this image, here's the camera specs:
Camera: Pentax K1
Lens: Sigma 50-500 with 1.4 converter Focal Length 700 MM
Exposure: f/22 1/5 sec ISO 100
Location: Kin Town Okinawa Japan
Date and Time: AUG 8 2017 8:06 PM
NOTE: AUG 22 2017 there will be a Black Moon over Okinawa at 03:30.
Do you think, I should climb up on the roof, to shoot it while it's in a black sky ?
