Saturday night the moon appeared bigger and brighter than any other time of the year. It's called the Super Moon or, if you're a scientist, perigee.
The moon was about 15 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter, according to space people.
Several readers sent Danville Patch pics of the Super Moon. We're sharing them here.
