April Super Moon Phases

April’s Super  Moon was on the 7 and 8.  It started on the 7 at 22:35 and lasted until 02:35 on the April 8.  April’s Full Moon is called the “Pink Moon”.  The name “Pink Moon” comes from the bloom of ground phlox, a pink flower common in North America.  I was unable to take a picture of the Full Moon, because of April showers.

I used my Nikon D7500 with the Nikon DX AF-S NIkkor 55-300mm | 4.5-5.6 G ED VR lens for all the photos at difference locations in Eastern North Carolina.

On Good Friday, the weather forecast was calling a clear skies with winds out of the Northwest, which usually bring cool crisp air with very little pollution.

I capture the moon rising over the Neuse River in Oriental.

Taken on 10 of April at 23:16

The focal length was 55mm.  I had my Shutter Speed set to 1/50 of second, Aperture set to f/4.5, and the ISO to 400.
