I am sure most of you must have seen the Super Moon on 7th and 8th of April. It is said that it was one of the closest to the earth in its elliptical journey round the Earth.
As per NASA ,Super Moon takes place when the full moon is at its closest to Earth at about 363300 KM as compared to average distance of 384400 KM. Since it is closest it looks bigger and also brighter too.
Although I took some shots in the evening of 7th April when the sky was still in its natural colour but when I went to the terrace to capture again at night ,it did not show its face as covered by thick layer of clouds. Hence I planned to get up early in the morning of 8th April to take some shots if the sky was clear . However I could not shoot it from the terrace as it was obstructed by the high rise residential buildings at Kaushambi. The only alternative was to come out of the house and shoot it from the wide road , hardly 20 meters from my house gate. Then the question arose
“Should I cross the “LAXMAN REKHA” fixed by the Lock Down declared by the Prime Minister on 24th March 2020. After thinking for a few minutes I thought of coming out of the comfort zone just to take a few shots (observing norms of Social distancing ) as there was practically nobody on the road in the wee hours of morning.
