Super moon

I'm posting this while looking at the full moon, dubbed a super moon in today's online articles.  It's yellow, like this photo I found online, but it doesn't seem all that big to me.  I'm about to leave, to go around the mountain to a spot here the moon should appear over an edge of the mountain much like this.  If I get a good photo, I'll add it to this post, later.
These last two photos are not very good, but from halfway up the side of Lookout Mountain I could see the lights of Chattanooga below and a bit of the mountain on the right.

So, did you take that first photo? I couldn't tell from your description.

There didn't seem to be much difference in the size of the moon to me, either, although they say it was to appear 14% larger. It was orange as it came up over the horizon (thanks to the atmosphere) and lost color the higher it rose, till it just looked like the same old moon. We had to chase it to get photographs, just like you did. If you look at my photo blog, you'll see our view in the neighborhood. We weren't going to get any photos without trees, as long as we stayed home, so hubby and I rushed to the high school parking lot to snap the rest of our pictures. If nothing else, we had a great time!

No, I didn't take the first photo. See my second sentence: "It's yellow, like this photo I found online, but it doesn't seem all that big to me."

Oh, I missed the "like this photo I found online" bit. Okay, thanks for clarifying. :)
