"The full moon is seen as it rises near the Lincoln Memorial, Saturday, March 19, 2011, in Washington. The full moon tonight is called a "Super Perigee Moon" since it is at its closest to Earth in 2011. The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993."

The next super moon will occur November 14, 2016. This moon is said to have a stronger than usual affect on the tides of the ocean so it surely must affect our moods since our body is made up mostly of water. Where do you think the word lunatic originated from?!
