On Wednesday morning, the super vernal worm moon was due to set under clear conditions and I had planned out a spot at Chandler Hovey Park from which to capture this image. I have many images of the full moon setting besides Abbot Hall but have only managed to capture the moonset beside Old North Church on two other occasions – and one was marred by clouds.

I could not have asked for better conditions or light with the moonset taking place just before sunrise. The vernal worm moon (so named as this is the first day of spring) set in a brilliant golden glow and I was thrilled to capture this shot of it near the Old North Church and above houses along Marblehead Harbor.
