Kansas City and our Supermoon, featured prominently


If you hadn't heard or seen, last Saturday evening we experienced what they call a "Supermoon" effect. The moon was 13 or 14% bigger in appearance, depending on the source you read, and brighter, all because it was 16,000 miles closer to Earth, in its orbit than usual.

With that, naturally, photographers from all around the world took to their cameras. As luck would have it, a local photographer, one Charlie Riedel, shot that beautiful orb over our own Kansas City downtown and NPR, National Public Radio, picked it up on their website as one of a dozen great shots of it:


And so, here's the pic (click on it for larger, easier, better viewing):


So kudos to the photographer, Mr. Riedel, and to you, Kansas City.

You look pretty darned good.
