My quest to capture a decent shot of the Supermoon continues. Last year’s Supermoon in New York was completely overtaken by a thick layer of fog that descended upon the city for the entire night. Not even a single sliver of moonlight made it through that foggy blanket.
This year in Seattle I decided to stop by Seattle Center to see if I could get a shot of the Supermoon. There were plenty of clouds skudding across the sky, but even hiding behind cloud cover, the moon lit up the night sky behind the Space Needle.
At one point it looked like the moon was going to pop out from behind the clouds altogether, but it was a bluff – it emerged from behind the denser clouds but stayed obscured by a thin veil of wispy ones, so instead of a nice, sharp supermoon, I got a fuzzy one.
I don’t mind, though, it was a huge improvement over last year’s New York no show. Maybe next year I’ll get the Supermoon photo I dream of.
