Last night's Supermoon was something to see! It was the

brightest and biggest in nearly 70 years! It is called a

Supermoon due to the fact that it turns full at the same time it

hits the perigee which is the point on the orbit closest to Earth. 

Although it was at it's fullest point close to the morning hours

of November 14 (right before sunrise), the cloudy morning

didn't give such a clear picture so I am glad that I had captured

it during the night of November 13. 

The last time the moon was this close to Earth was in 1948.

Next time it won't be until November 24, 2034!

I am so glad that I got to capture this beautiful event and truly

see the beauty of the full moon up close! You can see the

transition of the supermoon through the two pictures taken at

9:52 PM and then again at 11:54 PM.
