A Passing Minimoon

On June 9th we had a special type of full moon that comes only once a year: the minimoon, or a full moon that appears slightly smaller than normal.

Mama Bear and I tried to capture it rising, unfortunately the view from our location wasn’t very good and none of the shots through the trees really came out.

Fortunately, I was able to capture a fairly nice picture of it a little bit later after it rose above the trees.
