Photo #856 – 03.20.11
What’s not to love about a big, glowing orb in the sky called a Super-Moon?!? Last night’s full moon was quite big and quite bright, but it earned it’s ‘super’ adjective because the full moon was the closest it has been to the Earth in about 18 years. The reason for this has to deal with the elliptical orbit of the moon around the Earth that allows for the moon to be far from the earth at certain points and close to the earth at others…and this particular full moon just happened to coincide with one of those close points (although it was still 356,577 kilometers away!). Check out some other great Super-Moon photos by clicking here!!
This moon capped off a fun-filled birthday yesterday. Thanks to Heather for an excellent and creative guest post yesterday, and thanks for all the birthday wishes! Have a Happy Spring!
