I saw it.  But it looked like every other full moon (maybe a tiny bit bigger) and it definitely wasn't pink (not even a pinkish hue).  :moon: :moon: :moon:
I agree with everything you said.I was expecting more too.

I checked the sky around 1030 PM EST till around 1130 PM.

Plus we had a very clear night to view it.

The next supermoon will happen in May. It will be especially fascinating as it will be the closest supermoon of the year (222,116.6 miles) and will coincide with a total lunar eclipse in some places, which means it will take on a reddish look. The Old Farmer's Almanac says it will happen at 7:14 a.m. EDT on May 26.

Thanks for sharing. I caught that with my son as his science teacher flagged that to them.

Supermoon Madness

https://www.livescience.com/20093-supermoon-moon-myths.html

Myth 1 The Moon Makes Us Crazy. The word lunacy traces its roots to the word "lunar,"

Myth 2: The Supermoon Can Cause Disasters

The reason we have supermoons is because the moon's orbit is not perfectly circular. When it swings closer to Earth on its elliptical path, the moon does exert a bit more of a gravitational pull on our planet. But it's nothing Earth can't handle.

Tidal forces around the world will be particularly high and low, with the moon exerting 42 percent more force at its closest point to Earth than it does at its farthest, according to Joe Rao, SPACE.com's skywatching columnist. This extra force doesn't have an appreciable effect on disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis, however.

The May supermoon, also known as the “flower moon,” will be the second of three consecutive supermoons in 2021. Experts say the May 26 lunar eclipse will be a full one in the western United States and a partial eclipse in the eastern U.S. The full May "supermoon" will be the second of three consecutive supermoons in 2021.
