Saturday's full moon was a super perigree moon. This celestial event happens when the moon reaches the closest possible point of its orbit around the Earth.

(It'll be) roughly 14 percent bigger and about 30 percent brighter, said KING 5 Meteorologist Rich Marrriott.

Clear skies allowed people in the Puget Sound area to see it. At more than 221,000 miles away, it was the closest to Earth since March 1993.

It's going to look even better as we head into Sunday and Spring arrives officially, said Marriott.

This type of full moon tends to bring a range of high and low tides, but experts say that's nothing to worry about. Nor is there any truth to the superstition that super moons cause natural disasters.
