Whether the moment is actually auspicious, I suppose, depends on your own proclivities. But the lunar display certainly was over the top in my neighborhood. I was up and down all night watching it; last year's supermoon (in March of 2011) was obscured by dense clouds, as I recall. Last evening, I caught it rising in the east with my humble little point-and-shoot (which would probably do a better job if I would sit down with the manual and actually practice the settings.)
The amazing pearl was gone by about 6 a.m. and I went back to bed too! And am pleased to note that among the holidays listed for May it is also International No Diet Day! (Well, in that case, every day is a holiday for me.) The supersized moon was enough...no fries needed!
