Your Supermoon 2013 Playlist -- and send us those supermoon photos

I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out if this weekend's "supermoon" is Saturday (June 22) or Sunday (June 23). I saw plenty of people posting photos of a gigantic moon Saturday night.

The outcome? If you forgot to look at the sky Saturday, it's OK. ChicagoNow explains that "the moon will appear just-about full on June 22, and the full moon on June 23 will be a 'supermoon!'"

So check things out Sunday. And if that doesn't work, you can always watch a live supermoon webcast, scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET Sunday.

During a supermoon, "the moon appears up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual," according to The Huffington Post.

Don't forget to send me your supermoon photos. You can email them to for possible inclusion on our website and/or Facebook page.

Need some inspiration? I created a supermoon playlist that's ideal for a night of contemplation under the sky.

"Blue Moon" -- I prefer the Billie Holiday version

"Vincent (Starry Starry Night)"

"Moon River"

"Lucky Star" -- yes, I included a Madonna song...judge accordingly


"Stars" (Grace Potter & the Nocturnals song)

"Bad Moon Rising"

"Fly Me to the Moon"

"Shepherd Moons" -- yep, that's an Enya song

"Sunglasses at Night"

Note: I limited the playlist to my favorite tracks. Here's a list of 40 songs about the moon.
