With the supermoon upon us, I wanted to try out a long-exposure technique with my Nikon camera, so my friend and I drove up to the lookout point leading up to Cypress Mt. and joined quite a crowd to watch the supermoon rise over the city. We were so happy that the skies cooperated despite being cloudy on the afternoon of Saturday, June 23.

The “Supermoon” shines big and bright in some while obscure in other parts of the world as skywatchers get excited to catch sight of our celestial neighbour this year.
This is the biggest full moon of the year or rather when the moon is closest to the earth, called the “perigee full moon”.
The moon will appear 14 percent larger than normal and it’s worth looking up and appreciating the cosmos.
