Sunday's event was a "supermoon," the closest and therefore the biggest and brightest full moon of the year. At 11:34 p.m., the moon was about 221,802 miles from Earth. That's about 15,300 miles closer than average. That proximity makes the moon appear about 14% bigger than it would if the moon were at its farthest distance.
This photo was taken at dusk from the Dorrigo National Park Skywalk - NSW, Australia. Perched 70 meters above the very edge of the escarpment. The stunning view sweeps over the park and encompasses the Bellinger Valley to the coast. You can see how the landscape has been folded and sculpted into hills, gorges and slopes, and look down into the top of the rainforest canopy.
