['Supermoon' tomorrow] Sun/Moon-rise/set App
« on: November 13, 2016, 03:08:32 PM »
'Supermoon' tomorrow (2016-11-14)
It's nearer the earth than it has been in over 50 years.

How visible this size difference will be, I dont know. Most at moonset tomorrow morning I think, but probably also at moonrise later in the day.
So, when's that?

Cue app to show when and where the moon will rise in your location -

I found Time And Date easier to understand (being a complete astronomy noob):

Next one is on December 14 and then you have to wait a year for the following.

As to which direction I can see it, I'll look for the big bright thing in the night (assuming there's no clouds)  :D

^ Time and Date was linked as well (in the source link) -- yeah, lots of good info there.
Maybe cause I like maps, or tend to be very 'visual', I found the other easier to get into.

The advantage of the other one, for photographers in particular, is that they can find/choose a location with something specific in the foreground for rising/setting of the moon, maybe woods, or a lake.

True but since it was cloudy last night, direction became kind of irrelevant for me  ;D

and I simply missed it :-[
it took much longer to rise than stated due to a wooded high ground in that direction, and then I got distracted by something else :-\
Missed it by less than an hour I'd say -- at that stage it was quite high already, very bright, but not looking particularly big (which I guess most people know only happens when it's near the horizon).

Here's a guy who did it properly:
How I Photographed The Supermoon



worth looking around the 55 second mark: he shows an app called SkyView that superimposes the moon/stars etc on the camera view, including showing what time the moon will be at different heights. (Difficult to describe, just look)
Android link for SkyView: https://play.google....kyviewfree&hl=en

Skip to around 8:10 for the full moon video, and then images
