Moon over Moncton, 04 May 2012 (TWN)

The biggest full moon of the year peaked late Saturday and unfortunately it was mostly cloudy over Southeast New Brunswick which means we did not get to see it.

However, the moon was still pretty spectacular on Friday night and to a lesser extent on Sunday night.

The so-called “supermoon” shone 30 percent brighter this weekend because it was passing close by Earth.
