March 19, 2011, was the night of a "supermoon," so my wife and I went to Mt. Washington via the Incline and stood there for several hours in the cold in the hope of getting some good photographs. Of course we didn't only use an iPhone! She had her Nikon, a much better camera, but I wanted to see what my iPhone could do. The next supermoon won't be until November 14, 2016.

The full moon of March 19, 2011 was called a supermoon because the full moon occurred on the same date as the perigee, which is when the moon is closest to the Earth. At the perigee, the moon is only 356,575 kilometers (221,575 miles) away. Compare this to the apogee, when the moon is farthest away from Earth and the distance between the two is 406,583 kilometers (252,639 miles). Full moons at the perigee are 14% bigger than full moons at the apogee.

This photo was taken at 7:36 PM which was a little after sunset — after the bright colors of sunset had faded but before the darkness of night had fallen. The city of Pittsburgh is bathed here in this photograph in a soft blue light that seems quite peaceful.
