The moon is 'super' as its only 360,000 km away, while it could be upto 405,000 and usually somewhere between

1/180s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso1000 full exif

The 96% left refers to the illuminated proportion. The bite out of the bottom is where its still behind trees on top of the hill. Needless to say looked better 20secs earlier before camera organised.

Very fine image ,but I must ask and wonder like some others what happened to the missing bit..certainly looks like someone has taken a good bite...V

Looks like someone took a big bite out of the big cheese, Chris! ;o)

Very nice capture of this not-so supermoon.V.

Very nicely done

Moody capture, Chris. Yes, "super" is just the media's way to sensationalize a rather ordinary occurrence. I love the prognostications about the end of the world, larger-than-life, etc., misinformation attendant to the media blitz.
