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.

One of my favourite spots in New Brunswick is Shediac and area (including Parlee Beach and Pointe-du-Chene). 

Although Friday night was chilly, it was beautiful as the sun set over Shediac Bay from the wharf at Pointe-du-Chene. 

Soon the area will be abuzz with activity as tourists and summer cottagers arrive for the season.
