Super Moon!


During the full moon on March 19th 2011 the moon was only 221,565 miles (356,575 kilometers) away.... the closest it’s been in almost 20 years! It appeared 14 percent bigger and 30% brighter than usual. I didn't get a photo at moonrise which would have been cool, but I did get one around 11 pm after stepping out in my bare feet in the front yard!
