I can see it out my window now. It doesn't look any bigger than normal to me. Brighter, maybe.

Tomorrow's supposed to be better for it. But it's only supposed to be 14% bigger, so it's not really going to be noticeable anyway.

I used to live in Pennsylvania, and I remember them always looking spectacular, but ever since I moved south to Louisiana, just kinda eh. I remember once in college, there was a HUGE orange supermoon that was framed barely by a skyscraper, it was awesome. Was hoping for something like that. Alas, no.

Now if he were wearing a cape it would have been a real super moon. You should have seen the ones I chose not to post. Whoa.

My older sister sent me an article mentioning the very close moon because it was to occur on my birthday. I promised to take a snapshot of the moon and send it to her.

For reasons of modesty I can't post here what I sent her.

It's slightly cloudy but it adds a cool effect.

I took the occasion of the Super-Moon to take the dog for a nice night-time walk.

Nice big, clear shiny moon, with a touch of clouds from time to time for effect. No pics, though.

Finnegan (the aforementioned dog) was far too busy wagging and tugging and snurfeling the ground to take any notice. I hoped he'd start howling at it or do something doggy, but no.

The moon looked great on my ride home tonight. It reminded me of a fav song.
