|The Super Moon as viewed in Western North Carolina|
Last night was special because the moon was at perigee -- its shortest distance from the Earth. The last "super" moon was 18 years ago. If you were lucky enough to see the moon rise last evening -- it was probably an awesome sight. According to astronomers, the "super" moon was about 20 percent brighter and 15 percent bigger than a regular full moon.
Did you get a good glimpse of the "super" moon? If so, please share your photos!
