How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Supermoon This Weekend: The phenomenon of “supermoons” takes place when the satellite is in the Perigee, the closest point to Earth
This weekend you can see in Spain the “Snow Moon”, the first “supermoon” of the year. Its name derives from the fact that it coincides with a period of enormous snowfall in the northern hemisphere, is characterized by being slightly whiter and brighter than usual.
This “Snow Moon” will mark the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations and the Lantern Festival, and although there is no snow forecast in Spain, in the United States there is. There it is known by another name, “Moon of Hunger”, since it makes the exercise of hunting difficult.
The “supermoon” will be visible from Friday night to Sunday night, although according to the National Astronomical Observatory, the best time to see it in Spain will be at 08:33 on Sunday morning.
It will be one of the biggest moons of the year. The phenomenon of “supermoons” takes place when the satellite is in the Perigee, the closest point to Earth. Source & Photo: https://spainsnews.com/when-will-it-be-seen-in-spain/
