When The Moon Hits Your Eye

Like a big pizza pie

The Super Moon

Coming home from the movies with my son this evening, the moon was big, it was bright and yes, he told me "Mom, it's the super Moon."  I couldn't wait to get home, get out my camera and tripod and start to shoot.

Scientists know it as the "perigee moon."  The term comes from the elliptical path the Moon follows around the Earth and reaches perigee, which is the point closest to the Earth's center during the orbit.

I call it magnificent.  There's just no other word to describe it.
