Super Moon Images

This post is exclusively for nature lovers & those who missed the chance to see the super moon…I decided to post the images from yesterday snapshots by professional photographers..

An auroral and unusally big ‘supermoon’ lit up the sky theatre on Saturday, offering a visual treat to curious sky gazers. The phenomenon was special as the moon came closest to the earth in 18 years, rendering it the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.

The moon was around 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter as compared to other full moons during this year.The ‘supermoon’ is closest to the Earth in 18 years. It is the biggest and brightest of 2011

The moon was only 3,56,577 kms away from the Earth on Saturday the closest while at the full moon phase in 18 years. Earlier, there were supermoons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005.

A view of the Super Moon, at perigee (closest point from the earth in its orbit), in the backdrop of India Gate, in New Delhi on Saturday. The full moon at perigee appears about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons that occur on the apogee, farthest point from the earth in its orbit.

    Thanks!! Its raining here in wonderful ( sunny?!) California (United States of America), so there is no chance of seeing anything. These were the best pictures. Also thank-you for just letting the moon shine without all the depressing world disaster warnings. Thanks again. kms
