of course you knew that

Last night offered a Supermoon from the roof. 

Did you see it?

Know what makes it “super”?
31,193 miles.

The Moon’s orbit is elliptical and so it is that many miles closer to us at perigee (the closest point) than apogee, (the farthest away) and so it really is about 14% larger.

Next one is September 27th, 2015.
