Send us your picture of Monday night’s ‘super’ full moon

A super full moon rises besides the Space Needle Monday. This view is from the Ursula Judkins Viewpoint, part of Smith Cove Park, in Magnolia. The moonrise is not considered a technical "super moon" like the one that occurred this past June, but it is still closer than usual to the earth, making it appear larger than normal.

Look up in the sky Monday night and get ready for another big — and Instagram-worthy — moon.

The moon will be bigger and brighter tonight, similar to how it was last month on June 23. To the average observer, it looks like a “supermoon,” which occurs when the moon reaches its closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit, according to EarthSky.  The full moon tonight is at 11:16 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Tweet your photos @seattletimes.
