A super moon is a new moon with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. My son and I was able to see this super moon while we were bike riding on June 23, 2013, we went back to the house and got our cameras.
Through our research we found out that this super moon happens more than we knew, the next siting will be August 10, 2014. The super moon was bigger and brighter than we had seen all year, it was noticeable as it was raising in the sky but once it reach a certain height it was not as noticeable in size, but in brightness. My son made a joke about the werewolves were probably going nuts right now, they would have to be stronger since the moon was bigger and brighter. Then he says:
Son: Knock, knock!
Mom: Who’s there?
Mom: Werewolf who?
Son: Werewolf I be without you?
We could only wish that we could have seen it on the horizon, I know it would hold up to its name and appear “super”. Maybe next year!
