Supermoon
Sunday, December 3rd
This past weekend's full moon was termed a "supermoon" because it occurred at the perigee, or closest approach to the Earth, in the Moon's orbit. Thus being closer to Earth this supermoon was almost 8% wider and 16% brighter than an average full Moon. Gary Osterfeld took this image on Sunday from his front porch in Coldwater with the help of a tripod. December 3 was the first of three consecutive supermoons as two more will occur on Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, 2018.
