December's Supermoon ...

“And who hung the moon in the starry sky
Somebody bigger than you and I …”
            ~ “Somebody Bigger Than You and I”
    ~ written by Johnny Lange, Hy Heath
            & Sonny Burke
   ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
             ~ 1967

The Supermoon of December 3, 2017 shines brightly over Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, reminding me of the line in my most favorite Gospel hymn, the wonderful “Somebody Bigger Than You and I,” recorded by the great Elvis Presley in 1967.

A Supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal.

The term Supermoon has only been used in the past 40 years.
