Supermoon 2012

 

There’s a full moon tonight–well, 96 percent–according to the SkyWalk iPad app.  Because the moon is a perigee–it’s closest point to the Earth, it’s supposed to look SUPER HUGE at its rising and setting.

According to SkyWalk, the moon should rise locally at 8:03 p.m. and set at 6 a.m. in the morning.

If you take a photo or two, please share them with us.

Here’s the first one from Gigi Zagorah in South Africa.  She reports that it looks like the moon of normal.  But as you’ll see, her photo is taken when the moon is high over the horizon.  It’s going to be the optical illusion effect that makes it seem larger than normal tonight.

We will publish more photos as they come in from around the world.
