It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No! It’s a supermoon!

A few weeks ago there was an astrological occurrence! A supermoon to be exact. Basically, it’s a full moon that looks much bigger and brighter than normal and hasn’t happened in 18 years.

The term supermoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979 and is defined as, “a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth”.

I enjoy checking out the evening sky, looking at all the stars & the moon. It’s peaceful, don’t you think?

While out there I took a few pictures of the supermoon and have one that turned out pretty good.
