Up in the sky, look: It's Supermoon!

The heavens will deliver a rare treat to moonstruck romantics and werewolves Sunday who rise before the sun.
A feat of lunar synchronicity will create a Supermoon.
This happens when the moon is full and at the same time reaches its perigee - the closest point to Earth in its orbit, according to NASA.
It makes for the biggest, brightest moon of the year.

    Agree@vikingwoman
    Better the moon than an asteroid anytime.
    Good morning to you & @bobcat.

    BTW folks did you come across the Washington Post report that "Surveillance contractors paid millions in cash around $16 million to congressmen campaigns" Repubs got slightly more (7 to 9 million dollars more).
    McCain got the largest slice $ 420000.

    Lol @ saywhat, imagine that huh? And yet people are dogging Edward Snowden for spilling the beans on our corrupt Government coverups! I believe eventually, everyone gets their just reward in life. Hopefully, more sooner than later for the clowns in Congress. Specifically Republicans!

    A bright light shown in our skylights last night and made it seem like it was midday. We were certain we saw the New Moon at 3am EST We were sleepy so didn't pay much attention until my husband got a call to get the hospital as he was on call. Considering that tonight/early morning is when the main event is: alarms are set, tripods are in place, and the coffee is prepped to brew. Hoping to get some good shots of mother natures performance. Enjoy all, you can always go back to sleep.
