While celebrating Cinco de Mayo tomorrow night, we encourage you to wander outside (with beverage in hand, if that's how you prefer to wander) and train your camera on the night sky. On Saturday, May 5th, the moon will be closer to Earth than at any other time this year, which means it will appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than any other full moon of 2012. That's right, dudes and ladies — it's the supermoon! It happens but once per annum, it's bound to be beautiful, and we're pretty sure it won't turn you into a werewolf. Therefore, we want you to shoot the supermoon and share your videos with us!
Here's some moonspiration:
Upload your moon portraits to Vimeo and tag them with "Supermoon2012." Come Monday morning, we'll gather the most luminous lenswork to feature on the Vimeo Blog and Twitter. And if you need some tips, be sure to check out this handy guide for figuring out lunar exposure.
Happy supermoon shooting!+ More from the Staff Blog Archive
