Saturday evening, the moon was about 15,300 miles closer to Earth than it will be at any other time in 2012. This magnificent lunar event, which causes the moon to appear about 14 percent bigger than normal, is known as Super Moon.
My moon shots were not that great. I didn't pull out the tripod, so my handheld attempts left a lot to be desired. But, just to note the occasion, here's one shot I took of Super Moon surrounded by clouds. I added a little texture for interest.

Make it a great day!
