If you're in the Northern hemisphere you should be able to see the Moon. Look at it, take note of the features and dark portions. Now find a picture of the Moon anywhere (book, magazine, internet) and compare the two.
Notice anything?

I tried, I can't see it very well at all - I live among a lot of trees.

Could you tell me what is different?

it's weird that you just mentioned that because I was literally just outside looking at the moon. It is so bright tonite. i did notice that the dark parts were easier to view, however I didn't notice anything too out of the ordinary.

what did you see?


i just took another peek at it, and the dark part form a king of backwards Z. Most of the pictures I compared it to had the backwards Z rotated 90 degrees

I'm in Australia and where I am the weather is pouring with rain.

I'll never get to see the supermoon this weekend but would be really appreciative if anyone can take photos for me so I can see through your eyes how it's looking.

Cheers

Please take some pics, upload them and then explain what you are seeing if you can... sounds interesting and can't see here yet in the southern hemisphere.

Not raining here in SA and is a perfect, beautiful and cloudless day so can't wait for tonight!

I am in the Shasta area in Northern Ca. I have been waiting for this Moon. But due to the storm and cloud cover I can't see a thing. It has been hailing large pebbles most the day and even had Lightning strike the ground down the street causing outage for about 30 minutes. I am very disappointed I will not get to see it. Hope someone can get pics.

The moon is high in the sky right now where I am and it looks pretty much like it always does in mid USA. I hope that you can post again and at least describe what you think is different.

Are you referring to the difference in orientation of the dark spots from photos of the moon? It is my understanding that, although we basically only see one side of the moon, we sometimes get to see "slivers" here and there as its rotation around earth is slightly imperfect in regards to seeing only one particular disc view of the sphere--does that make sense? Anyway, what you photograph one night isn't quite always what you get the next night. Also, photographers may have various camera orientations when pointed at the moon, thus resulting in the moon appearing upside-down or turned in different photos.

Now, what do you see that's different?


Anyway, it's a gorgeous thing to see right now. I'll take out my 300mm lens tomorrow night and get some shots to post here.

Earlier tonight it was nice and clear and looked so beautiful upon rising. A few minutes ago I went back outside and it is very cloudy out. I was able to catch glimpses but I didnt see enough to really spot anything of note. My dog seems more skittish than usual but he's a little dog and my cat, who never comes outside even in the face of an open door, came outside and began to roll around on the ground. Maybe the animals know, lol
