SuperMoon 2013

Video pull by me, AubreyJ
This Sunday, June 23rd, right at 6:30pm CDT, the moon will be at its closest point to Earth for the 2013 calendar year, making it look 14% larger than normal in viewing size and will be as much as 30 percent brighter than normal making for a particularly LARGE and BRIGHT,  Supermoon Rising!
Below is a video I took of the 2012 Supermoon rising…

It was back on Saturday, May 5th, 2012… the Moon was at its closest point to the earth during a full moon, (that is until next year,) making it 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal in the evening sky. It was so COOOL watching it rise in real time that evening. It was so big and bright... and really a sight to see.
Sooo... Turn up the volume and watch this video in REAL TIME... and see just how fast the moon really rises off the horizon.
NOTE: Use the telephone pole and lines to gauge the moon's movement!
. ENJOY!!!
