Strawberry Supermoon

Yesterdays’ strawberry supermoon is the last supermoon of 2021, and the first full moon of the summer. It is named the strawberry moon because it coincides with the strawberry harvesting season.

The moon was too far away. I needed a larger lens or a telescope to capture a clearer shot! It was still pretty from a distance though.

My strawberries are looking great and they taste delicious too. They need a lot of water and are persevering with the crazy, hot Greek heat.

Super Blue Blood Red Moon



The “Supermoon” went from blood red to yellow.


The yellow “Supermoon”.


Today was the day the ‘supertrifecta’: blue moon, supermoon and total lunar eclipse occurred all at once, the last time this happened was 150 years ago!

Here in Greece, I was able to see the moon clearly and I saw the full moon change hues from red to yellow ocher. But, I didn’t see any blue hues on the moon. People who live in East Asia, Australia, and the West coast of North America will see this extremely rare supermoon a lot more clearly.

The phrase ‘once and a blue moon’ comes to mind and I think that we can expect a lot of changes with this rare moon. I believe the changes have already affected me because I did a good job of cleaning and organizing my bedroom 😉

This digital collage contains layers of photographs that I have taken of the Supermoon, a temple, a headless statue, a window and trees. I made the collage background scanned it and then I layered all of the images. I have made a black and white version and the original colourful one is below.

Αυτό το ψηφιακό κολάζ περιέχει στρώματα  από φωτογραφίες που τράβηξα με τo Supermoon, ένα αρχαίο ναό, ένα ακέφαλο άγαλμα, ένα παράθυρο και δέντρα. Σάρωσα το κολάζ φόντο, και στη συνέχεια  έβαλα όλες τις εικόνες. Έχω κάνει μια ασπρόμαυρη εκδοχή και το αρχικό πολύχρωμο είναι κάτω.

Full Moon Madness

What a disappointment! My ‘supermoon’ had been blocked by rainy clouds.  My plan to take a photograph of the moon was almost aborted when a few hours later the clouds dispersed. The whole sky did not clear but I did get some photos of the full moon.

It is a rare moon because the last time the moon was that big it was in March 1993-18 years ago. I don’t remember where I was or if I was aware of its appearance then. I was about thirteen years old, so I was probably busy doing my homework 😉

The next time we will see it will be in 2029. Some people are frightful of full moons. They believe that they cause catastrophes such as earthquakes and tsunamis. It is odd that only a few days ago Japan was hit with a massive earthquake and tsunami.   Today, the day of the ‘supermoon’s’ appearance, we are hearing of an upcoming war in Libya. Whether the full moon is to blame for people becoming more impatient, aggressive and war mongering  is open to discussion.  Astrologers are claiming that this moon will bring more catastrophes in the upcoming days. The only thing we can do then is to be cautious. We can’t say we were not warned.
