Supermoon

Today saw the supermoon for the second time in my life. We even went for a drive just to catch a better glimpse of the moon. How could I not capture it on camera?

Earlier supermoon pic that I saw in India is here: http://wp.me/p3iG9o-1ib

On Sunday (June 23), the moon will be at its closest point to Earth โ€” called perigee. This relatively close brush will happen as the moon enters its fullest phase, creating the cosmic coincidence known as the supermoon. At its fullest and closest, the moon will appear about 12 percent larger in the sky.ย  (Taken from link)

    • Thanks for the link Aravindh. Interesting, no wonder I did not find the moon all that big but the brightness was more. Nice to read about the illusion. Many times I have felt that the moon was bigger when it was at the horizon. Now I know why.
