Supermoon view from Eiffel tower towards Rio De Janerio of Brazil

Moon view from Eiffel tower, Supermoon view on 7 May 2012

The full Moon Saturday night as we call supermoon, the latest fully illuminated moon appeared slightly larger than usual because it occurred unusually near the closest point in its orbit to Earth. In the photo, the supermoon was captured Saturday night rising behind the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Of course, the angular extent of the moon in comparison to foreground objects can be adjusted just by changing the observer's distance to the foreground object. When compared to nearby objects the moon may appear tiny, but when compared to distant objects -- the moon may appear huge.
