Peter Lowenstein – also in the Southern Hemisphere, in Mutare, Zimbabwe – caught the moon on the morning of November 4. His video is above. He wrote: “I got up early to observe the full moon setting but was disappointed to see that there was a lot of cloud around. The whole moon was only visible for a few moments at a time before being covered again. However, by amazing good fortune, a small letterbox gap developed beneath the cloud immediately above Christmas Pass allowing it peep through for four minutes before disappearing below the horizon. This lucky catch was recorded in a series of 91 still photographs which were used to produce the accompanying time-lapse animation. The camera used was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 in night scenery mode.”
Mike Cohea – whose video is above – was in Newport, Rhode Island on November 3, when the full moon rose just as a cruise ship was passing … Nice timing, Mike!
Bottom line: Photos of the November 2017 full Hunter’s Moon.
