Predict the Moon for Better Photos


Andre Gunther just posted an excellent tutorial about predicting where the moon will be so that you can plan your shots.  The article comes at an opportune time as I have recently been experimenting with night photography.  I am sure that many of you would also benefit from his little tutorial.

In brief, Andre shares his technique for predicting where the moon will be at a given time on a given day.  He uses some pretty basic software like Google Earth and an application referred to as Heavenly Opportunity.  The tutorial is fairly easy to follow along, and it’s a great resource for planning your shots.  Even if this isn’t interesting to you, you should at least visit the tutorial to see some great night photos.
