Just walked out an looked at it--12-4-17 @ 12:25 AM.  Didn't really look any bigger or brighter than any other full moon to the wife and me.

From what I read about it, the Supermoon's rise and set is the most dramatic time to view it.  Once it gets up higher in the sky the apparent 14% increase in size is not as noticeable. :shrug:

Yep.  I was just coming back to edit my post to say that I should've walked out when it was just coming up over the tree line.

Snowing here so no view of the moon. :P

Missed it through not knowing.
Would have missed it regardless due to rain.

My wife lol'd when a pic of a tortilla stuck to a window pane came across her FB. The suggestion was a way to reproduce the super moon if you missed it. Other than not being too round the shot looked pretty good. :shrug:
