29. Just saw supermoon

May 2012

It seemed a little brighter than normal but that could be partly because I'm used to city moons and it seems brighter out here in the booneys? Southeastern Ohio.

Pretty sure I've seen super-er.

Still, hey, free supermoon, can't beat that.

A supermoon is a full moon, and therefore by definition cannot be visible during the day... Systematic Chaos May 2012 #15
