The biggest full moon in 18 years appeared Saturday night and CultureMap contributing photographer Michelle Watson got a great view of it. Michelle rented a 400 mm lens to capture its beauty from the back yard of her Bellaire home. If you look closely at the upper left, you can see the texture of the craters.
When she got home around 11:15 p.m.from a photo assignment, "it was cloudy and I wasn't sure it would happen," she wrote in an e-mail.
"I told my husband I'd be outside for a while hoping it would clear up and there would be a little window. Miraculously, when I walked into the backyard it was clear as a bell. Five minutes later, the moon was covered again."
Dubbed the "SuperMoon" by astronomers, astrologists and amateur scientists, it's a phenomenon that brings the moon to its closest approach to Earth in its elliptical orbit since 1993.
