The Flower Supermoon 2020: images and podcast

Last night, we enjoyed the Flower full Moon, also a Supermoon, the last one of 2020. We had very clear skies and shared the view with many thousands of people all around the globe. Here we present a couple of images and the podcast of our live feed.

The Flower Supermoon was playing "hide and seek" among the roofs of Rome - 7 May 2020.

The last Supermoon of 2020, the fourth in a row this year, has gone, after offering a superb show above the skyline of Rome. We managed to bring the view to everyone on the planet and it was a huge success. A few tens of thousands of viewers spotted it via our live feed. Time flew away, as always when you stare at the beauty of the night sky.

The sky was just perfect and the temperature nice, fitting so well the feelings of a Spring evening and the idea of the Flower full Moon. It was a particularly precious experience, while still facing the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

I managed to image it with a Canon 5D mIV DSLR body and a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens, plus a Canon Extender EF 1.4x III and a sturdy tripod.

I’m happy to share here a couple of images, hoping they will bring to you the feelings and the beauty of the experience.

Below, you will find the video from our live feed.

Goodbye, Supermoon, see you next year!
