Up in the sky — it’s a bird, it’s a plane… no, it’s a spider and a SuperMoon! Well, not quite. This composite image by Brian who is called Brian on Flickr was actually taken last night, on September 7, 2014, but it’s an awesome lead-in for our usual request for astrophotos of the Harvest Full — and super — Moon tonight.
So, post your images on our Flickr page, tag your photo with #supermoonphoto to get our attention on social media. We’ll include many in our article here, retweet them, and generally promote them anywhere and everywhere we can think of.
Of course, the future has already happened in Australia, and you can see the full Moon setting in Australia, below, as well as Moonrise images just coming in from Europe:
And just how big is the Moon? Astrophotographer Göran Strand (@Astrofotografen) posted this on Twitter:

The perigee fullmoon ("supermoon" for some) a few minutes ago with a handheld camera – a bit hazy, thus the coloring. pic.twitter.com/JUYcRnMZyJ
