Perigee Moon

Last night, if the skies were clear, you might have seen the largest appearing full moon in twenty years. The moon’s orbit is not circular, and this was the closest a full moon has been to the earth since 1993. It won’t happen again until 2029. I took these with the Nikkor 70-300 kit lens. I’m pretty happy with these results.
