Moonrise & Sunrise Photography at the Deering Estate

MIAMI (November 04, 2016)

The Deering Estate offers an exciting opportunity where you and your photography friends can take sunrise or moonrise photos of Biscayne Bay!

Moonrise Photography
Monday, November 14 "Supermoon"
5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Cost: $20; register online or call 305-235-1668 ext. 233.

Watch & photograph a beautiful moonrise over the horizon! "The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016, but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century," says NASA. A supermoon occurs when the moon is slightly closer to Earth than it typically is, and the effect is most noticeable when it occurs around the same time as a full moon. It can appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual, according to NASA.
