Moon Rising at Perigee

On March 19th 2011, the moon was to pass the earth in it's nearest point (perigee) and I was fortunate enought to catch this shot very early in the event. Admittedly, it looked no larger than any other I had seen during my lifetime, and surely not in this image. :-) I had to settle for this shot since I would not be in a position to capture a better one later that night. This was billed as a "super moon" that was to be some 20% larger than normal but I honestly could not tell, particularly at this early stage. Perhaps it will seem larger on the next occurrence, a few thousand years from now.
