Welcome to Spring with a Supermoon

Spring opened up on 19 March with a Supermoon which was a full moon only 221,565 miles away - the biggest and brightest full moon since 1993. The "supermoon" phenomenon occurred because the moon was in its full phase at at the closest point in its orbit to Earth.  

All three of these photos are from our balcony -- I was surprised that my camera could get the seas and mountains of the moon as well as it did considering I do not have an expensive camera.
