Tonight’s Supermoon was the result of three factors – a full moon, occurring at its closest orbit to the Earth and during a lunar eclipse.  As a result of the Earth’s shadow, the penumbra turns the moon that distinct color.  All pretty cool.  I took this photo with my Canon 7D Mark II and the Sigma 50-500mm lens @ 2000ISO, f/8 & 0.8 exposure.  I varied a step -1 to -2 exposure to increase the detail.  The photo has been cropped to focus on the moon’s detail.
