Supermoon Over Machtesh Ramon

Just 16 hours after the perigee full moon, we saw it rise again, this time over the desert landscape above and beside Machtesh Ramon. It rose like a huge orange pumpkin in the sky, slowly climbing to illuminate our observing plateau. Another wonderful sighting of this special moon.

Supermoon on Sunday, May 6, rising 16 hours after perigee above the rim of Machtesh Ramon (Ramon Crater). 



Perigee full moon rising above Mitzpe Ramon, not exactly Ansel Adams.
