Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

On Saturday March 19, 2011 at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the moon arrived at its closest point to the Earth in 2011: a distance of 221,565 miles. Known as a lunar perigee or "Super Moon, it was astrologer Richard Nolle who linked the full moon of March 19th to natural disasters. He claimed that this "Super Moon" would trigger massive earthquakes, volcanoes and powerful storms when it arrived. But scientists assure that this is not the case.

    Incredible detail, Lanis! I'm not too sure how assured I am by the scientists.

    Awesome shot, Lanny. "There's a Moon Out Tonight" was recorded in '57 and went nowhere, but was re-released in '60 during the Doo-Wop mini-revival in '60-'61 and shot to #1. Another great Philly group!
