"Super Moon" to occur on March 19.
Mar 17, 2011

Plans to photograph the moon, anyone? It seems that there will shortly be a rare opportunity to catch a "Super Moon."

From NASA: March 16, 2011: Mark your calendar. On March 19th, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It's a super "perigee moon"--the biggest in almost 20 years.

"The last full Moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1983," says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC. "I'd say it's worth a look."
