Photo Share: Minimoon!

If you looked at the moon last night, it probably looked really big, but it is actually the smallest full moon of the year. Last June 2013 we had a Supermoon, about 12 percent larger than usual in the sky. January’s Minimoon is a full moon at its farthest point from Earth and makes it the smallest full moon of 2014.
