Super Moon

Super Moon, Full Lenten Moon, approximately every 18 years the full moon falls on its perigee, where the moon is at its closest proximity to the Earth appearing much larger larger than normal so as to appear Super Large. It was a gorgeous sight, brighter than normal too. We only have to wait until 2016 for the next one.
