Tonight, we braved the wind, rain, and freezing temperatures up on Haleakala to capture the biggest full moon in 18 years, known as the “super moon”. Although we missed the moon rise due to bad weather, once the bright moonlight broke through the clouds I managed to capture a ‘moonbow’ at the summit! Here are some of my photos from tonight:
With my husband still gone for this New Year’s Eve, I chose to spend it doing photography rather than going out to party.

But in the meantime, here’s some photos of my neighborhood after the lights went out. Almost looks like daytime except for the car light-streaks and Tripler’s Christmas lights in the distant background. This first one has the blue tint because of a large lightning flash during the 30 second exposure. These photos were all taken around midnight, when normally all the streetlights would be on.
