Super Moon - just 220,000 miles away

Posted in

This high dynamic range photo of the "super moon" was taken about 10:00 pm Saturday evening from 130 S. Brooks Street looking south east over the Sheridan County Courthouse. This super moon is about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a regular full moon. At its peak moment the moon will be about 221,824 miles from Earth - closer than the typical 252,581 miles. Enjoy it while you can as it won't be this close again until August 2014.
