How Super was the Supermoon?

When I looked out my window tonight all I saw was a regular-looking full moon. After tweeting that I was underwhelmed with how “super” the moon was, I got a couple of replies with photos far superior to mine. Maybe the moon was “super” after all.

The “super perigree moon” meant that the moon tonight was supposed to be bigger (and closer to earth) than any full moon since 1993. My photo is above.

Then @stacygratz tweeted back with this shot from Brooklyn:

And earlier, NASA posted this one from Washington DC
