With the moon 15,300 miles closer to the Earth, it appeared 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than it would if it were furthest from the Earth during an elliptical orbit. When the moon is closest to the Earth it is referred to as being in its period of perigee. The moon lined up with the sun to make it a full moon. Millions of people across the country and the world stopped for a minute to take in what was one of the most breathtaking spectacles in a long time on Earth. Let us know your supermoon stories in the comments section below and your thoughts about the photos.
