Tonight apparently the moon is closer to the earth than it’s been in the last 18 years or so, and thus is called a “supermoon”. It occurs when the moon is at perigee, or its closest location to Earth. Tonight’s moon will appear about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon. I managed to get a fairly decent photo of it without a filter on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2.
