Kodak Agfa Presents : Once in a super blue moon "Updated"

Kodak Agfa is back to photograph the space and whatever appears in our skies, especially on our long summer nights.

Updated on Wednesday: 

Here are a couple of photos from Wednesday night as the Super Blue Moon reached its peak.

Super blue moons occur on average every 19 years. The last super blue moon occurred on August 31, 2023, and the next one will occur on May 20, 2026, inshallah.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Earth is having one big Super Blue Moon lightening its night and it is not to be missed

August 2023's Super Blue Moon

A super blue moon is a special event in the night sky that happens when the moon looks bigger and brighter than usual. As you may have known already if you are a regular friend of Egyptian Chronicles, Supermoons are called "super" because the moon is closer to Earth, making it appear larger.

"Blue" doesn't mean the moon actually turns blue; it refers to the second full moon in a month. In a nutshell, Earth has a beautifully shining ball lighting up the night in those 48 hours.

If you missed it on Tuesday, try not to miss it on Wednesday.

FYI, the Super Blue Moon was not alone Tuesday night. It was accompanied in a rare event by the lord of the rings itself, Saturn

Oh yes, you will find a very bright star besides the Super Blue Moon but it is not a star it is Saturn and if you have a telescope or a fine camera zoom you can see it enlarged.

Saturn and co.

Saturn's striking brightness has made it easily visible to the naked eye since ancient times including our ancient Egyptian ancestors.

When Saturn is in opposition, it shines even more brilliantly as it directly faces the Sun from our perspective. Its distinctive colour and the possibility of spotting its iconic rings with a telescope or telephoto camera zoom make Saturn a celestial marvel worth observing.

Photos taken by Sony a6500 with e-mount 50-210mm lens without a telescope. I used the zoom and crop so I am sorry for the quality.
