Super Moon in 2020

There were three Super Full Moons in 2020. A “Super Moon” is a Full Moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee (the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit) resulting in a slightly larger than usual apparent size.  The dates were:

March 9, 2000: 222,081 miles (357,404 km)

April 8, 2020: 221,851 miles (357,035 km)

May 7, 2020: 224,429 miles (361,184 km)

Unfortunately, it rained on two of the dates, so I was wasn’t able to photograph the Super Moon at 100% full in March or April.

I used my Nikon D7500 with the Nikon DX AF-S NIkkor 55-300mm | 4.5-5.6G ED VR lens.
