The Moon over NOLA

On Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016 New Orleans residents were treated to a rare night sky event: The “hunter’s supermoon.” According to, a ”supermoon” is a full moon at its closest point to earth, not only is the moon closer to earth but it also looks bigger and brighter.

More light from the moon came in handy for traditional hunters, hence the term “Hunter’s Supermoon.” In case you missed this “supermoon”, you get another opportunity on Nov. 14th. Photos by Natese Dockery
