Let's compare the Moon size !!!
Last November we heard about the Super-Moon, meaning that during full Moon are satellite was at its closest distance from Earth (Perigee), so we could visually enjoyed a very big and bright Moon.
This June, didn't heard too much about it, we experienced a Mini-Moon, this time our companion was at its farthest distance from Earth (Apogee), so its appearance is very small and not so bright.
Both images taken with telescope WO-81 + Canon 500D
