The only "supermoon" for 2017 provided a beautiful orange orb to appreciate as it rose over the Hobcaw treeline across the bay on December 3rd. A "supermoon" occurs when a full moon is closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit. The moon was actually closer to the Earth back in May but it was not a full moon and, therefore, not a "supermoon". Michael Dollason captured this image on his phone, zooming in when the moon cast a wide reflection on the water.
Beautiful sunrises, moonrises, sunsets, and night moons are just a few of the reasons Belle Isle is such a beautiful place to spend time.
