Enjoy the Splendor of Tonight’s Super Flower Moon While Paddling Canyon Lake
The last full super moon of 2020, the ‘Super Flower Moon’ rises over Canyon Lake tonight.
Experience its beauty from the tranquility of a stand-up paddle board or kayak.
MyCanyonLake.com Outdoors Editor Karla Held, who owns Central Texas River Trips, is taking groups and individuals out on the lake to enjoy this last in a series of four supermoons that began in early February, with one rising every month since.
The price is $50 per person and includes gear, life jackets, guide and instruction. Social-distancing and sanitization practices are in place. Fees are $20 per person for those would like to use their own gear/sup/kayak.
“We’ll provide lights for paddling in the dark under a full moon, but you also are welcome to bring a headlamp or any type of glow lights you’d like to use,” she said.
Full Moon Paddling begins at 7 p.m. today, May 7. Meet at Boat Ramp #5, 3150 Canyon Lake Forest Dr., to paddle from a nearby private-access beach.

About the Super Flower Moon
According to sciencefocus.com, full moon is called a supermoon when it coincides with the Moon being at (or within 90 per cent of) its closest point to the Earth (its ‘perigee’) as it follows its elliptical orbit around us.
May’s supermoon will be 361,184km away from Earth – compared to the average Moon-Earth distance of 384,400km. A supermoon can be up to 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a normal full moon.
