SAN FRANCISCO (CNN) - A lunar light show circled the globe Saturday, rewarding many moongazers with bright, crisp detail of the full moon's craters and basins.
Called a "perigee" moon by scientists, the annual phenomenon occurs once a year.
NASA said the moon appears about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons. That's because it will be as close to Earth as it will get for a while, just over 221,000 miles away.
