Don Poggensee’s photos of the “Super Moon” that thrilled us this week

IDA GROVE, Iowa, Nov. 14, 2016 — We haven’t seen anything like this “Super Moon” since 1948, the astronomers tell us, and we won’t see it again until 2034.  To put it in earthly perspective, that makes it almost as rare as a championship by the Chicago Cubs in the World Series.  And so we weren’t surprised at all Sunday night to receive “Super Moon” photos from photographer Don Poggensee here in northwest Iowa. Poggensee wouldn’t miss a celestial event like this! 

He took these photos in western Ida County with wind turbines providing a nice foreground.
