Artist Reham Sonbaty recently caught the third (and last) “super moon” of the year on camera. Her vantage point at the headquarters of the Adam Foundation for Human Development in Giza offered a panoramic view of the astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the moon is in the full moon phase and at the same time is at the closest point to the Earth in its orbit. Here's what she saw through her lens.
This is the third and last "super moon" of the year. The full moon of both Islamic months Ramadan and Shawwal were “super” as well.
El-Sonbaty says that Shawwal's moon came closest to the Earth. At the time she climbed up to the roof of her house to capture the images.
El-Sonbaty has put up her images on her Facebook "super moon" (https://www.facebook.com/pages/سلسلة-المعارض-الإلكترونية-سوبر-قمر-للفنانة-التشكيلية-ريهام-السنباطى/299646986879922).
The photographer believes that online galleries make it easier for the artist and the public to communicate and interact, and allows word to spread faster thus reaching a wider viewership.
