Supermoon


If you have been fortunate enough to have a clear sky in last couple of days, you may have noticed that the moon is especially bright and large. This is no coincidence, since this month’s lunar perigee (221,796 miles) occurs at around the same time as the official moment of the moon’s full phase.

We have had three supermoons in a row this summer, but this weekend’s is the biggest and brightest.

  1. I like your version of the supermoon best. ..though I wonder if it’s more of a distress calling signal!

  2. I was just marveling at it out the window last night and thinking it was particularly beautiful! Now I know why. Thanks!

    • Hi, Tam. Hope all is well up in your neck of the woods. Glad you could see the supermoon. We were overcast and raining last night here in Ohio. Quick update: we are now raising sheep as well as chickens. And in our local authors group, I’ve been “teaching” out of “Anatomy of Story” thanks to you.
