The Moon Was Huge Last Night!

It was hard to miss the size of the moon last night! I was driving to the bowling alley in my latest attempt to break 100 and had a great view of the moonlight. While I couldn't snap a picture from behind the wheel, I've included a great shot from NASA. Their description is below:
The full moon is seen as it rises near the Lincoln Memorial, Saturday, March 19, 2011, in Washington. The full moon tonight is called a super perigee moon since it is at its closest to Earth in 2011. The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March 1993. Image Credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls
