“Supermoon” Night Over San Francisco | 2020
The full moon on March 20-21, 2019 brings us the final “Supermoon” of 2019 – the first such supermoon to land on the first day of spring since 2000. Read more on EarthSky.
Best chance for photos of the Supermoon: Moonrise/Moonset
As long as weather corporates, the best time to take photos of a Supermoon is either right around moonrise or moonset as the moon will be closest to the horizon, so you can see the moon relative to hills, trees or buildings for a frame of reference.
- Wednesday 3/20 Moonset – 7:19am
- Wednesday 3/20 Moonrise – 7:13pm
- Thursday 3/21 Moonset – 7:55am
- Thursday 3/21 Moonrise – 8:25pm
Although the moon appears full for a few to several nights in succession, the moon is only truly full for a fleeting instant – when the moon lies 180 degrees opposite the sun, from the vantage point of Earth.
