This morning, 14th December, I was up bright and early, to catch what I hoped would be a gloriously-coloured sunrise. As I arrived at Poole Harbour I saw the first hint of a fiery, red sky, glowing over Sandbanks. It looked good, but I then spotted something even better behind me: a huge ‘supermoon’ over Poole and Poole Quay. Turning my back on the sunrise, I captured some nice shots of the amazing December 2016 supermoon over Poole.
This third and final supermoon of the year appeared over Poole up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an average full moon.
