- A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon’s disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term “supermoon” is not an astronomical one, but one that originated in modern astrology. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. However, the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.

Wish we could have got a view of it at it’s full size in this country. I imagine it was awesome.
The full size view is magnificent. I saw it once when I was very young. Honest to god it was HUGE, like a planet instead of the moon, right there, and all reddish, orangy!
The super moon has been a lively topic for posts this week … it is truly amazing. I like the way, you had a little information with that luscious photo to explain why the moon does appear to be so gigantic. Mother Nature is awesome. 🙂
haha, thought everyone should know, hence I did some wikipedia info sharing 😀
thank you Jeanette

yes indeed Lopa
I saw that moon Saturday night. It was absolutely marvelous; so low it felt like you could touch it.
it was soo big and bright!
Stunning! I had been shooting all day and when the moon came up, my battery went down. Well done!
I just observed the beauty!
Beautiful picture !!
2 photographers took up the task of getting the beauty on camera
thank you Missus Tribble
I have seen a super moon once , it’s such a beautiful sight. The picture you posted is stunning.
indeed it is
glad you like it
I would have loved to see this oversized moon, alas it has always been cloudy so far in Colchester, UK. The moon is currently 16% larger than normal to the observer.
It is always cloudy over at UK isn’t it?
It is at the moment.

Beautiful! I’m sad I missed it- we were cloudy here in Minneapolis.
that’s sad. cloudy weather at the wrong time sucks huh
We couldn’t see the Ring of Fire here in Washington. We’re West Coast, but too much cloud cover and rain.
I didn’t get much either, but a bit was wonderful itself
My family and I didn’t have a good view of the Supermoon. Too much cloud cover. Thanks for sharing your photos.
