A "Supermoon" is the coincidence of a full moon or new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is Perigee-Syzygy. The Moon is an average distance of 237,000 miles from Earth. On the evening of March 19, 2011 this "Perigee Moon" was only 221,000 miles from Earth. It was full at 14:11 EDT / 18:11 UT. This image was captured at 6:49:50 on March 20, 2011 as the moon set over the Adirondack Mountains of New York across Lake Champlain.
