"Three things cannot long be hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth..." - Buddha

By JJ_A
Dubbed the "Super Pink Moon," this full moon appeared larger and brighter than usual because the moon was at perigee, or the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit. With this ultra-close event, the moon was just 221,772 miles (356,907 kilometers) from Earth, compared to its average distance of 238,855 miles (384,400 km).

This closer proximity of the supermoon makes it appear about 7% larger and 15% brighter than the average full moon.

Excellent image - splendid detail. An image of this quality is much harder to do than you might imagine.
