The supermoon. Every 18 years the Moon gets on a point on its orbit where is the closest to Earth. That's when we get what we call the Super-Moon. It happened this year during the weekend of March 18th, 2011. I got to watch the supermoon rise over the Manhattan, illuminate the waters of the Hudson, and then passed on the Jersey Side to continue yet another night round over the continent.
