"Super Moon" Shines in Rochester
The moon was closer to Earth Saturday night allowing many gazers to see its craters and basins more closely.
Shots were taken from the East Coast to the West Coast from right here in Rochester to San Francisco.
The "Super Moon" happens once a year when the moon is 15,000 miles closer than normal when there is a full moon.
The moon is typically 238,000 miles from earth but it was only 221,000 away last night.
NASA says the moon appears about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons.
The "Super moon" is called "perigee" by scientists.
