Another shot of the supermoon, with a borrowed 800mm lens from the Lower Fox Creek School. This was taken about an hour before the lunar eclipse began. You can clearly sea the dark spots, lunar “seas,” that make up the face of the man in the moon–or, in Native American and other cultures, form a rabbit. The ears are to the left. Or, to the right, depending on the story.
The supermoon rises above the prairie near Strong City, Kansas, Sept. 27. I was standing in front of the Lower Fox Creek School, at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, when I took the photo. At about the same time as I took this, the Wichita Eagle’s Travis Heying took this photo; that’s me and Kim just to the left of the school building.
