Our clear skies on Saturday night allowed people in Western Washington to get a great view of the super moon - the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.

The moon was closer to Earth than at any other time during the year, marking the nearest encounter between the two until August 2014.

The moon was closest to Earth at 4:32 a.m. PDT Sunday morning, but it looked large on Saturday night as well.

This year the moon appeared up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a typical full moon because it will be only about 222,000 miles from Earth.
