"Supermoon" was visible in area

Amateur photographer Shelly Glaesman got several great shots Sunday evening of the "supermoon" over Lehr.
A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a 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 the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system
This supermoon brought the moon the closest to Earth since January 26, 1948. The next one like this will be November 25, 2034.
