Largest Full Moon in 18 Years

Posted on by Susie

Saturday, March 19, 2011 marked the largest full moon in the past 18 years. The full moon was 221,565 miles from earth, making it the biggest and brightest full moon since 1993. The Moon appeared about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than the smallest full moons the Earth sees. It was a spectacular sight as it rose over Destin, FL. Here are a few pictures we snapped on over the weekend. We hope you enjoyed this wonderful sight.
