The moon was out and illuminated Laguna Niguel like a lighbulb on Saturday night.
It was also the largest it has been all year. Why? Because the moon is at its perigee which translates to it being closer to the earth than any other time in its regular orbit.
Experts such as NASA said it was about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the other full moons of 2012.
Super perigee moons happen only about once a year on average.
And when the moon is on the perigee side of its orbit, it's about 31,000 miles closer to Earth than the apogee side. The results include slightly higher tides and breathtaking photographs.
