    Super Moon Cloudy Over Brooklyn, NY

     
    The perigee-syzygy or full/new moon, aka, the Super Moon, failed to shine brightly over Brooklyn and Queens, NY early Monday morning with residents there getting a cloudy view instead of the worldwide phenomenon.

    Clouds blanketed the Super Moon at 2:01 a.m. Monday morning as it passed over South Brooklyn, New York.

    Scientists says a "supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth."
