The closest super moon in nearly 70 years rose into a night sky filled with smoke from forrest fires giving a dramatic reddish yellow hue to the sacred orb.

Super Moon 2016

The Super Moon has risen! I was concerned earlier that the Forrest fires providing hazy dense smog today would hamper tonight’s photographic marvel. Not so. In fact, the hazy atmosphere has provided a reddish yellow hue to the super moon, a color combination with the added background of the AmSouth Building in downtown Huntsville that reminds me of my High School Alma Mater. This shot is presented in remembrance of Butler High School and it’s iconic green and gold colors.

The absolute optimum is actually early tomorrow morning, but hay, I’m done for the evening. You can still get out there and view this once in a lifetime event.
