Supermoon (March 19, 2011) by 

Thanks to a fluke of orbital mechanics that brings the moon closer to Earth than that has been in more than 18 years, the biggest full moon of 2011 as occured on Saturday, March 19, 2011

I took this shot this evening above the Buzzards bay, New Bedford, Clark’s Point at Fort Taber
at 7:20pm
Points of lights below the moon are from beach houses on Buzzards’ bay water (click on link below)
