This weekend will be Super Moon weekend.

A super moon - called a "perigee full moon" by astronomers - describes the moon’s closest approach to Earth for a particular month. The June super moon will be the moon’s closest encounter with Earth this year. On June 23, the time of full moon will take place within an hour of the time of perigee. So, the June 23rd full moon will look larger than it does in other months.
Tonight Tre took this picture,, not bad for having not held that camera before. grin

The Moon is very Bright tonight,, tomorrow will be even brighter because it will be closer. Sunday night will be the best.
Get your camera's out let see your pictures of the moon this weekend bop

FANTASTIC picture, Tre!!!

I had also heard about this moon, though we will probably not get to see it Sunday, as they are once again predicting heavy rain. OY!
