If you weren’t able to head out to catch the super moon last night, the professional and amateur photographers of the Thompson-Okanagan have you covered.

The Super Pink Moon offered a phenomenal subject for photographers as it was the largest moon we’ll see this year, according to this article. Despite the name, the moon isn’t actually pink and it is also known as the Egg Moon, the Fish Moon, and the Sprouting Grass Moon.

Ashley Britton captured shots of the moon through tall pines in Vernon.

Photographers in Kelowna were able to capture some shots of the moon, such as Landon Hemmes who captured the moon in a pink hue over the Okanagan Valley.

Folks in Kamloops got some shots of the moon rising, such as these ones taken by Susanne De Montreuil. She started taking the shots just after 7:45 p.m. at a lookout point at the end of Qu’Appelle Road.
