The last Supermoon of 2017 was visible Sunday night thru the Monday morning this week. Here it is setting directly over Beech Mountain’s 5506’ summit (Eastern America’s highest town) seen from just outside Banner Elk, NC Monday morning around 7:30am. A 300mm telephoto lens at f8 for 1/500th of a second was used for this photo. A Supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit during full or new moon.
