Supermoon 2017

The supermoon put on quite a show, visible from the front portal here in Eldorado at Santa Fe. This supermoon was the first in a trilogy, a series of three supermoons appearing on the celestial stage on December 3, 2017, January 1, 2018, and January 31, 2018.

A supermoon is a Moon that is full when it is also at or near its closest point in its orbit around Earth. Since the Moon’s orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee).
