We were told in the news that the full moon would appear 16% larger tonight because it would be closer to earth than it had in almost 20 years. Well it sounded too good to be true so several photographers here in Kentucky decided to have a meet-up at the Amtrack train station on the Ohio River here in Maysville to capture the event digitally. It was a great time meeting new friends and catching up on things with old ones. The plan was to all be ready as the moon broke the horizon over the Simon Kenton Bridge (a landmark in Maysville) so we picked our favorite vantage points. We were all a-buzz with anticipitation but shortly after 8:00pm we began to doubt that the moon was even going to appear (as if it would just decide not to show it’s self for the first time in all of history). But it did appear, and instantly a strange hush fell over the small group of photographers. “There it is!”
It was all eyes to the view finders. Not a word was spoken.
