  • I am guaranteeing several of these if not all are simply double exposure camera tricks. No camera would be able to focus that well on the moon and the foreground at the same time. Someone took a good picture or the moon and then a good picture of the foreground then overlayed the two shots. The two pics may have been taken one after the other but they were put together artificially. They are very pretty pics and very artistic but they are not 'natural'

  • Anon...These types of moons only happen once a year, but when they do show, its great. A full moon again coincides with the moon's closest approach to the Earth the morning of June 23, 2013. The precise points where the moon is at its fullest and closest to Earth are separated by only 30 minutes not long after sunrise, but the moon should still be big and beautiful the previous evening. There was another super moon last year also. And also, NASA says the moon will only be 221,824 miles away at the time, over 30,000 miles closer than it is at its furthest distance from the Sun. In addition to appearing somewhat larger and brighter than normal, Supermoons coincide with tides that are larger than normal.
    So in fact anon, they are very real not trick photography. There are cameras that can catch the Northern Light shows, and to do that, it takes a special camera.
