Supermoon of 2013

Up there in the sky – it’s not a bird or a plane; it’s a “Supermoon.” Bigger and brighter then normal full moons, the supermoon on June 22/23 will be the closest and largest full moon for all of 2013.
The moon will be some 29,000 miles closer to Earth than the farthest point in its orbit, but not to worry the moon will still be more than 221,000 miles away from our blue planet.
