Last night the super moon occurred, which is when a full moon coincides with the moon being closest to the earth in its orbit. That’s about 190,000 miles away! According to NASA, the moon appears 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual. Unfortunately, clouds did move into the region last night and may have obstructed views of the moon. Depending on where you were, some did a great glimpse of the moon last night.   We have received numerous super moon photos and here are a few from last night.

If you have any weather photos you’d like to share with us, send them to weather@WDAY.com or tweet us @WDAYweather with your name and location. You may get your photos broadcasted with credit to you!

Kellen joined the WDAY Weather team in March 2014. In December 2013, he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of North Dakota. While he was there, he did his Undergraduate research on peoples’ reactions and effectiveness of Tornado sirens compared to Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs). After his junior year, he interned at WeatherNation, where he worked as a weather producer. Kellen is a native of Woodbury, MN. He says, “Unlike most meteorologists, I was terrified of the weather as young kid- the movie ‘Twister’ did not fair me well. I later turned that fear into a passion and the rest is history.”  When he isn’t keeping an eye on the weather, you can find him staying active outdoors and cheering on UND hockey and football.
