Last night was the Supermoon (or perigee) of 2012 – did you see it?
We decided to take a chance despite the cloud cover, and went down to the beach for a fire and to see if we could see the moon at 8:35 (moonrise according to the local reports).
It was one of the coolest sights we’ve seen! The pink-ness of it as it came up and the way it headed into the clouds was quite spectacular.
We stayed at the beach until about 9:40, by which time the “Ninja Moon” (so dubbed for the way the clouds striped across the top of it like a ninja warrior’s headband) had disappeared completely behind the clouds.
It actually cleared up about 10:30 or so, and Mr. Kate and I saw the moon in the sky again. It was so bright my camera couldn’t take a good picture of it!
Great experience, and a fun excuse to have the first beach fire of the year.
