Moon Watch: April 2012

Posted by Gary Ramey on March 30th, 2012

There will be three opportunities to shoot the moon in April but April 6 will be the only day that the moon rises during the blue hour. The blue hour is the time immediately after the sun sets and the sky turns a deep blue. The best day to catch the moonset is April 7 because the sun rises at 7:05 AM and the moon sets 22 minutes later.
