We’re taking a break from super close-ups of tech gear to go exactly opposite. Last night was a supermoon, and I managed to get a pretty good photo of it.

A supermoon is a full moon that coincides with perigree, the closest the moon comes to Earth in its orbit. Technically, this is called perigree syzygy, but from a marketing perspective, you get a lot more traction with supermoon. 🙂

The opposite of the supermoon, when the full moon coincides with apogee is called a micromoon, or apogee syzygy. A supermoon can appear up to 14% larger than a micromoon.
