Charlotte supermoon, real or Photoshop?

Did you see Sunday night's Supermoon?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Many local Charlotte Instagam accounts have posted photos of the supermoon that was visible Sunday night and Monday night from around the world. Some of the images have become incredibly popular, but beg the question many are discussing on social media: Real or Photoshop?

Take a look for yourself:

Have seen all these photoshopped pictures of the moon tonight, so I thought I'd join in.

Meteorologist, Brad Panovich weighed in on this debate when he viewed the following image:

Panovich explained that this image had to be Photoshop because the moon was not in that location last night at any time. The image is looking north, but the moon rose in the east and set in the southwest. This image would have to have been shot from the north to be considered legitimate.
