Full Moons of 2021 in a Single Image

It took a year to produce the images of every full moon of 2021 and they are displayed on Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). There is an explanation as usual. There was considerable attention paid to "sameness" here: same camera, same lens, same pixel scale, same place  Kolkata, India, planet Earth.

The moon names are from the Algonquin tribes who lived on an extensive swath of land from eastern Canada to north of Minnesota.
