Tonight is a supermoon! Nasa says, “On March 19th, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It’s a super “perigee moon”–the biggest in almost 20 years.Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon’s orbit. It is an ellipse with one side (perigee) about 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other (apogee) Nearby perigee moons are about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons that occur on the apogee side of the Moon’s orbit.”

It’s not a great photo by any means, shot through a tangle of trees, but it was looming huge and orange there on the horizon and I had to snap a shot before I got too cold because I ran outside without a jacket on – LOL.
