The night of November 14th, 2016 was a treat for sky watchers. We were graced with a supermoon. I worked until 9 PM that night and missed the most spectacular display as the moon rose and splayed itself over the above the eastern horizon.  As the silvery orb rose to the peak of the sky, it looked like any other moon. Nothing special. The moon was extremely bright on the evening preceding the 14th, so it was hardly a surprise that I slept restlessly and woke up extremely early on the morning of the 15th. I awoke at 5 in the morning to see the moon shining orange in the pink dawn. 

As the sky got lighter, the moon made its descent behind Big Mountain casting its reflection over the water as it would make its way across the ocean. 

There is something magical about the day as dawn breaks and the moon sets. I spent ten minutes or so photographing the moon as the sky rapidly warmed up.
