Go Back

Full Moon (enhanced color) The full Moon on March 19, 2011 coincided with the Moon being at its orbital perigee, an uncommon coincidence that made it appear (slightly) larger and brighter than most full Moons. Rolf Hempel took advantage of this "Supermoon" apparition and clear skies over Germany to capture this spectacularly detailed portrait.
