I send a composition made of the Full Moon in perigee and apogee maximum this year.
Moon at perigee was photographed on March, when the Moon (Super Moon) was the largest in nearly twenty years.
The Full Moon has been photographed in apogee today, October 12 (Columbus Day) at dawn, at the farthest point of its elliptical orbit this year.
Both pictures of the Moon have been captured as it passes through the meridian.
Telescope: Sky Watcher Refractor 120/1000
