Specatular super moon lights up night sky for star gazers

In this photo by Associated Press photographer Aung Shine Oo, the moon rises behind the Uppatasanti Pagoda in Naypyitaw, Myanmar.

The Dec. 3 full moon was the first of three consecutive super moons. The next two will occur on Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, 2018. A super moon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the moon reaches Earth in its orbit, resulting in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.

This image was made with a lens at a focal length of 300mm, a shutter speed of 1/200, aperture of f3.5, and ISO 320.
