Clear skies Saturday night created a spectacular view of the full moon throughout St. Lawrence County, as the Moon made its closest approach to Earth for the year, as shown in this view shot by Sherrie Stanton of Lisbon. Viewing the Moon from her front porch, she said it was also possible to see the red planet Mars in the sky as well. For more on the “sap moon” or “super moon,” view story by Astronomer Bruce McLure of Norwood. For a step-by-step view of the moon rising in Potsdam submitted by Chris Chapin, a great shot taken in Massena by Leo Ames, a very detailed view of the Moon from DeKalb shot by Genine Gehret, a photo taken by Sara Cole with a 1000 mm zoom lens from her back yard in Norfolk and a last look as the moon was setting on Gravel Road in Gouverneur, taken by Marget Mayers, view slide show.
