Did you see the Super Moon?

Last night, we headed to the windward side of the island to see if we could catch a glimpse of the super moon.  Once we got to Kailua town, we realized, we weren't the only ones with this great idea.  The streets, the beach parks, even the residential areas were teeming with cars and people!

We managed to find a parking spot near a beach right-of-way.  We headed down the path only to find that this particular right-of-way led to a fishing spot, no beach.  While there was no sand, there were also no crowds of people--just one lone fisherman who was trying to figure out why there were so many people on the beach at 7pm.

We told him about the super moon and asked if he had seen it yet.  The moon had not yet appeared.  Just as we turned to head back to the car, I began to see a small sliver of light peeking out behind one of the Mokulua islands.  In no time, the moon came up, big and bright.  I took this shot with my phone.  It doesn't really capture the size of the supermoon, but it trust me, it was beautiful! 


  1. Even in downtown Phoenix the moon was amazing!

  2. What an amazing photo, Lorena. I love seeing the moon over the Atlantic out at the Hamptons. Can't imagine what it must be like in Hawaii.

  3. Teri--come for a visit and find out for yourself!

  4. Lorena your moon is the same size as mine. I photographed it coming up behind a carnival Ferris wheel. I have not had time to download yet. Yours is much more exotic than mine.
