This photo shows a "regular" moon versus a supermoon.
There will a Supermoon on Saturday night. The moon orbits the earth in an elliptical orbit. So sometimes it gets closer and farther away. About 3 or 4 times a year - we have a full moon when the moon is at perigee - or its closest distance to the earth. This makes the moon appear 15% bigger and 30% brighter.
There is a bridge south of town at Panacea where during a full moon you can see the moon and sun directly lined up with the bridge. Maybe I will go there tonight to take a few pictures.
