Super Moon - March 19th 2011

So this was the once every 18 years "Super Moon". I really didn't think it was that "Super". I got out a good 20-30 minutes later than I should have (I would have got to shoot it a little lower in the sky had I got out a little earlier), but overall, nothing is Super about this moon. I've seen the moon around Halloween and at other points throughout the year and it's low and big early in the evening - no bigger than I can tell during these other times of the year where the moon is big and bold, but I'm sure NASA knows better than me and when they say it's the largest appearance the moon will have in 18 years, it's probly slightly bigger than other times during the year, but nontheless still bigger even if minimally so. But I'm glad I shot it so I'm not fixating on what I might have missed!
