I once saw a supermoon every bit as big as the one pictured. I was still in my teens and such phenomenon did not feature anywhere as much in the more limited media of the times..so I knew nothing about them.
I was walking home across a recreation ground and I reached a part of the park with a slight slope, and was stopped in my tracks by this huge orange/red moon which seemed to fill the horizon..it was both beautiful and startling!
If you use the word 'mind' without defining your terms I will ask you politely for a definition. :smile:
This is not to be awkward. But it's really not self-explanatory.

Fun fact - The term "supermoon" only appeared about 40 years ago, and only in popular culture much more recently. It's actually taken from modern astrology; the astronomical term is "perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system."

I had a similar experience with the sun and the moon... beautiful and startling!

Blue Moon 2018: When is the first Super Blue Blood Moon of the new year?

MOON gazers waiting for the Blue Moon are thrilled to witness the January supermoon rise in conjunction with the Blood Moon and a total lunar eclipse.
