2016 Summer Solstice Full Moon: 20 June 2016
As we reported earlier today, This summer solstice is introduced by a Full Moon. Last time it happened was in 1967. The image below shows the Moon while rising, as seen from Rome, Italy.
It is a single shot, taken with a Canon 7D mark II DSLR, equipped with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM, used at 200mm. Some trees are marginally visible.
The image below was exposed on the Moon directly, to show its features at its best; the same setup as above was used.
