Last Saturday, March 19, a “supermoon” rose over the mountains of WNC. The next day, the spring equinox occurred at 7:21 p.m. EST, marking the start of the new season. These videos capture beautiful imagery of the full moon at its closest point to Earth in nearly 18 years, as well as the dawn of new spring flowers around Beaver Lake in north Asheville.
