Super Moon June 23, 2013
Some of you may have heard news about the super moon. Being crazy as we are, we chose to watch the moonset in the early morning hours of Sunday instead of the moonrise on Saturday night. As we approached the Belt Parkway entrance we saw right away the moon was hanging bright and full over the Verrazano Bridge. We stopped over near 99th Street to snap some photos of the moon over the bridge and the streets of Bay Ridge. The sky is a bit hazy with some fog. We headed down to Belt Parkway to the small parking lot there. At 3:30am the moon is still a bit high. But the Bridge is gorgeous under the inky blue sky. The moon hangs a bit too far left from the Bridge. I had hope the moon would be a bit closer the Bridge. Anyway, as the moon sink lower and lower it got bigger and took on a yellow hue. Around 5 am the eastern sky began to light up with pre-dawn colors of pink and orange. To add a bit drama to the finale a cruise ship entered the New York harbor and passed right over the setting moon at about 5:30 am.
