The caption on the NASA website reads: "The full moon is seen as it rises near the Lincoln Memorial, Saturday, March 19, 2011, in Washington. The full moon tonight is called a super perigee moon since it is at its closest to Earth in 2011. The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March 1993."

Somewhere Jimmy Stewart and Frank Capra are smiling.
