Shoot for the moon

A so-called supermoon was visible across the Crossroads on Saturday night. This photo was captured by Advocate reader Mike Hessong from his back patio near Chandler Elementary School about 11:45 p.m. with his Sony SLT-A77 camera, using a Sigma lens and a tripod and a cable shutter release to eliminate vibration. The special view happens when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth. Two more supermoons will occur Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.
