If you were out Saturday night and looked up in the sky, chances are you saw a breathtaking full moon. By midnight, it arrived at perigee - its closest approach to Earth. This supermoon, as it is called, was captured near Hidden Valley Ski Club in Vernon by photographer Nicholas Ortiz at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, May 6. This month's perigee moon is the closest to Earth any will come this year. According to scientists, the radiant full moon was 16 percent brighter than the average full moon.
