Near "supermoon"

Near "supermoon"
Two nights before the "supermoon", the closest full moon since 1948 and for some many years to come. I gather that a combination of orbital factors are bringing the moon about 30,000km closer than is usual, so consequently it appears a little larger. Best viewed large on a black background. Here's a musical link.

A really terrific shot, George! I was just saying to the Mrs. that I need to get reacquainted with the names of the lunar seas and major craters, which I used to know when I was a kid.

A Terrific Image!!
