Whoever coined the term "supermoon" needs to be hurt. Really badly. The last I checked there's only one moon out there, and there's nothing especially super about it.

This is really only an event to people who would never look at the moon otherwise. Like that Bad Astronomy article says, you have nothing to compare it against in the sky. The moon looks no bigger to me tonight than it did when it was full last month.

Not sure if you're being serious, but that is an effect of the atmosphere.

Also, put your thumb closer to your eye.

Or move further away from the monitor.
