According to this news in Yahoo, the term supermoon (or super moon) has become popular in recent years to describe a situation when the full moon occurs at or near the time when the moon is closest to Earth on its non-circular orbit.

And tonight happened to be the supermoon or the biggest full moon of 2012 when the moon was 14 percent larger than normal and 16 percent brighter than an average full moon.

Judging from the above photos, the moon indeed was more prominent today as even at past 5 AM, which was the time I took these pictures, it was still very visible.  

I even got a zoomed-in shot of it, which is posted below.
