The moon was at its closest approach, so it was 14% larger than normal. That's something nobody would notice unless they had the typical moon right next to it for reference. Otherwise, it wasn't "spectacular", like the media reported. To the casual observer, nothing would have been different.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
