Supersize Me!

These were taken from Grosse lle, Michigan as the moon rose over Windsor Ontario, Canada.

The largest full moon in more than 18 years – a so-called "supermoon" – did not disappoint eager skywatchers around the world Saturday when it rose, big and bright, into Earth's night sky.

The full moon of March was 221,565 miles (356,575 kilometers) on Saturday, March 19 just 50 minutes after it hit its full phase, making it the biggest and brightest full moon since 1993. The "supermoon" phenomenon occurred because the moon was in its full phase and just 50 minutes past perigee – the point of its orbit that brings it closer to Earth.

Saturday's full moon appeared 14 percent larger and 30 percent bigger than the smallest full moons Earth sees. Source: Space.com
