Pictures Of The Supermoon, As The Whole World Saw It
Originally published on Wed May 23, 2012 10:49 am
Well before night fell stateside, the "supermoon" was already a star. Cameras from Tokyo to Athens gazed into its light, just a little bit brighter than usual.
It was enough to inspire some beautiful photos, so we thought we'd share what we've found.
For those who prefer science to art, NASA has a pleasant video to explain the phenomenon, uninspiringly called a "perigee moon." Well, we still think it's super.
