Tonight's full moon is super!

Tonight's Hunter's Moon is a super moon. November's full moon will be even more super.
Despite the poor quality of the photograph taken by my tablet computer, tonight's full moon is a super moon.
This is called the Hunter's Moon.
It is a super moon because it is closer to Earth than it was back in the spring when it achieved fullness. It was a micro-moon then.
Being super, it looks bigger, though you probably won't notice it. It will just look big and full and bright and neat, and that is all that really matters. If you are interested in more info, I suggest a visit over to Earthsky.org for a nice explanation of a super moon.
Or just do what I do: Look and enjoy and thank the Lord for a marvelous creation.
