A supermoon occurs when the full moon coincides with the time that the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. This makes the moon appear larger and brighter. It’s only about 7% larger and brighter than an average full moon. But, hey, it’s a reason to get out and shoot it. And a reason to hashtag all of your images with #supermoon while the world is excited about it!
A beginner’s mistake when photographing the moon is to stand in your backyard and get a closeup of the moon up in the sky. There is nothing wrong with that, but your image will look the same as everyone else that has done that. To make your image different, you’ll want to combine it with an iconic object in the foreground. Remember that Scott Bourne recommends that you make photos rather than just take photos! This is great chance to do that.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
