Super Moon

With this much illumination, you might think this is a photo of the sun.

When a full moon is at the point in its elliptical orbit so that it is closest to earth, we call it a SUPER moon.

Because it is 17,000 miles closer to Earth than usual, it appears much larger.

Naturally, I couldn’t pass up this photo opportunity, especially since I got this view from my own backyard.
