Supermoon Rising

Tonight is the night of the supermoon rising! I'm not an astrologist or astronomer, but as I understand it, the moon looks very, very large during the moon rise because this is the night when the moon and the earth are as close to each other as they get. Jeff & I went outside with my camera and tripod and captured these shots. Isn't it beautiful?
Many folks believe that a supermoon is an indicator of bad things to come, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. I don't believe that. It's just too beautiful for that to occur. This second shot is a bit darker, but shows off the moon pretty well.
