Did you see the Supermoon this morning?

By

Look up in the sky for a super sight: The biggest and brightest full moon of the year.

The so-called supermoon appeared 14 percent larger than normal early this morning as our celestial neighbor swings closer to Earth. Some viewers may think the supermoon looks more dazzling, but it's actually an optical illusion. The moon looms larger on the horizon next to trees and buildings.

The moon came within 222,000 miles of Earth and turned full around 6:30 a.m.
