Hi fellow UK ATSers.

I'm wanting to take my kids to the best view point for tonights "super" Moon.
Can anyone give me some good places to go in the SouthEast of England.

My kids pointed out how big and bright the Moon was last night and are excited at the fact it will appear bigger tonight.

Here is a collage of photo's Ive taken over the last couple of days. Enjoy

I will add some of tonights Moon also.

Hi there,

Great pictures! This evening me and my family will be going for a walk to one of our local beauty spots to view the moon. It's a beautiful sunny day so we are hoping it will be a clear night.

Looking good so far

Ore in still waters at night

I am in The Netherlands hope the sky is clear to see the moon. Yesterday night it was raining .
Curious what the effects are going to be.

It was impressive here last night in Manchester.

Hopefully we'll get clear skies again tonight.

Find somewhere off the beaten track, quiet and where you won't be disturbed. Take a flask, camera, wrap up warm and soak in those moon rays.

Have fun, look forward to seeing your pictures

I remember the last one, it was like a huge golden ball in the sky,people were coming out of theyre houses to photograph it, lovely day for it to.

I live in Southend so hopefully it's going to be an amazing view.
So far today..there doesn't appear to be any clouds.

I can't wait
This is going to be my first viewing of one.

The rise of the super moon will bring a new chapter with it.

Box Hill

edit to add better map...

Go up zigzag road until you get to the view point which will be on your right.. can't miss it..

If you go here you will NOT regret it.. as long as the sky is clear of clouds you're going to have one heck of a view here.. From the car park at the bottom where the cafe is (or the roundabout near it) you want to go right up to the top of the hill.. plenty of places to park and there is a big seat type thing and a view point you can sit on.

It offers an outstanding view out towards the southern flat plain. You wont be hampered by city lights polluting the air (they're too far away and way down the hill..

I really hope you can get there for tonight.. wish I was near there too tonight but I'm on a charity ghost hunt at Bodmin jail

Hope this helps you out

Thank you Exralien
Much appreciated my friend.

It seems to be closer than Southwold Suffolk to where i am. I did want to see it rise out at sea but that place you have shown me looks great

You're very welcome..

It's a lovley drive/ride too..

i used to go there every Sunday on my motorbike.. There is a big bike meeting there every sunday, all year round..

One guy (you'll see pictures of him in the cafe, unless they been removed) who was a bit of an elderly gent, looked after the parking of cars and bikes voluntarily for years and years.. never missed a Sunday.. i believe he has passed on now..

it's a great place to go for a day out.. wonderful place for relaxing..

Hi boo, I've just checked with Stellarium and the time of closest approach will be midnight. According to the weather forcast your best bet for clear skies at that time will be the Kent coast.

I'm in east London so hopefully I can get to try out my new zoom lens before the clouds arrive.

Saturday Starting with a widespread frost, and any early mist and fog patches soon clearing. Then staying sunny today, with very little if any cloud, and light winds.

Saturday night Clear this evening, allowing temperatures to quickly fall. A slight frost will occur, mainly across parts of East Sussex and Kent, before cloud increases later tonight from the west.

So there might be some clouds coming across.. doesn't give an exact time when these clouds might arrive though.

Actually..if you scroll down that page..they reckon clouds will begin to be around at about midnight at Dorking so partly cloudy from that time..

Anywhere in the Countryside, away from street lights and car lights.

Also, as a professional photographer for over 20 years now with a great interest in Astronomy, use the following settings if you can / have an SLR Camera with Manual mode.

250th second shutter speed (no tripod needed)

F8 / 11 / 16 if you lens allows

at least a 300mm long / zoom lens

Set you camera on the highest quality setting if it's a digital one in case you need to crop in

Post your results please and have fun!

Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions.

I'm just waiting on my partner getting home and then we will decide were to go.

I only have a digital camera, nothing special but it does a good job.
