strawberry moon

Fact of the day: June’s full moon is called the strawberry moon, named after the season for harvesting strawberries (from http://fullmoonphases.com/full-moon-names/ – each month’s full moon has a name! and there’s really one called a blue moon hahaha cool)

I tried taking photos of the full moon last night and it turned out not bad! I’m amazed that so much detail can be seen cos even after zooming to the max, the moon only took up 2% (legit) of the photo so this is a very cropped version:

The second one is a photo from online that has pretty much the same orientation for comparison – it’s obviously a lot sharper and with much more detail but I think mine’s already pretty cool!
