Pictures of Super Full Moon ( Perigree Moon ) - Malaysia GMT 8 at 02.10 20/03/11

Salam and good days guys,

There's a full moon Saturday, but it won't be just any old full moon. It'll be bigger and brighter. It will appear larger as it makes its closest approach to Earth in 18 years.Scientists estimate the "supermoon" rising in the east at sunset will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter at its peak.Full moons vary in size because of the oval shape of its orbit, with one end closer to Earth. On Saturday, the moon will be 221,565 miles away _ the closest to Earth since March 1993.This celestial phenomenon should give people an excuse to take time out for the moon

I managed to capture some pictures using my poor 5 mp bb torch lens,according to the table on the previous post, we in malaysia be able to see the super full moon on 20/03/11 at 02.10 am with the distance around 356,606 km and 99.8 % illuminated.

So enjoy the pictures guys:
