Last night the moon got up close and personal with the Earth.

Scientists tried to throw cold water on any claims that ER rooms would be busier or crime would spike. And then astronomers tried to remind us that it wasn't a really a big deal anyway, since it happens once a year and it's not that much closer anyway. Morris Jones, a professional astronomer who hold a regular sidewalk astronomy event in Monrovia, told Patch, "It's not something that's visually detectable."

But, whatever, nothing is going to stop us from looking at a beautiful full moon on a mostly clear night and capturing it as best we can on Instagram.
