'Worm ' Supermoon!

I do love these daft names the media come up with! Tonight's full Moon is apparently associated with the first appearance of earthworms after the winter (Oh really?) and is 14% or so larger than a 'normal' Moon. That is, of course, a barely discernible difference in size...

However, the sky was clear early on this morning, so I took a few photos. I've had a number of e-mails asking that I continue to label the craters as I have in the past: here goes! Bailly is the largest lunar crater visible from Earth (If you discount the maria basins, all of which are, of course, the sites of vast impacts that have flooded with basalt.)
