Here it comes again, another full moon and once again it is a Super Moon. For the next week, the sight of the moon is going to be very impressive with the highlights being Saturday (moonrise at 7:15pm ) and Sunday (Moonrise at 8:00 pm) nights when the moon will be at more than 99% full. And as always, the BEST place to watch the full moon rise is either ON the Water Taxi or at a vantage point on land next to a Water Taxi Stop. I have made it a point to be out on the Water Taxi each of the last three full moon nights:
In June I got off the Water Taxi at the Esplanade Park Whistle Stop and had a great view of the moon amidst the billowing clouds. This was, I think, the day before that actual full moon so the moon was up before the sun actually set.
In July, I went to stop B in Hollywood and walked to the Hollywood Beach Theater on the beach at Johnson Street. After a memorable oldies rock and roll performance, I went to the beach for a couple of moon shots. The moon was only visible for a few minutes as it quickly ascended into low lying clouds. I did take some photos, but sad to say, I did not get anything worth posting.
In August I went to the top of the 17th Street Bridge directly above Water Taxi Stop 5 and took a variety of photos. I liked this one as it captured the ambiance of the evening.
AND do not forget the Beautiful Fort Lauderdale sunset that precedes the moon rise.
