Supermoon – Central Oregon Coast

The western sky looked mostly clear around 6pm so we decided to head to Waldport to see if we’d get a shot at the last Supermoon of 2014.

Maybe the Supermoon will rise right there?

Looks like there’s a very small window of opportunity on the eastern horizon.

I’m also watching the sunset over my shoulder…

The sunset cast a little bit of color.

A couple kayakers were taking a sunset cruise but it was becoming evident that I would not see the supermoon from the Alsea Bay Bridge.

Back in Tidewater, the supermoon crept over the mountain at 9:10pm.
