We received so many wonderful photos of last night’s moon, the July 2014 supermoon! It reached the crest of its full phase this morning at 6:25 a.m. CDT. (11:25 UTC). Spencer Mann in North Oaks, Minnesota captured this photo just 3 hours before full moon, at 3:16 a.m. CDT (8:16 UTC). He wrote:
It was overcast tonight in Minnesota, but the clouds cleared up enough that I could see the full moon a few hours before opposition. The cloud layer created an interesting glow around the moon that isn’t apparent on clear nights. Luckily, the mosquitoes were too busy biting me to occupy the intervening space between the camera lens and the moon.
