Battle of the Moons

May 19, 2021


Photographer: Soumyadeep Mukherjee
Summary Author: Soumyadeep Mukherjee

The photo above displays the angular size difference between a
supermoon and a "micro" Moon. The smaller Moon was the Cold Moon of
2020 (captured at apogee on the 30th of December 2020), and the
supermoon was the Pink Moon of 2021 (captured at perigee on the
27th of April 2021). The supermoon was almost 10% bigger in the
night sky due to its closer approach to Earth.
Photo details: Nikon D5600 camera; Sigma 150-600 lens; 85% of 280
images stacked via Pipp and Autostakkert for each Moon shot and
processed together in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop.
