Supermoon – August 10, 2014

The largest full Moon of the year occurs at about 1:30pm on August 10th. The Moon does not rise above the horizon until just before 7pm, but it is still very nearly full at that time. A supermoon is said to occur when the Moon is full at the same time it is near perigee, or when it is at its closet approach to Earth during its orbit.
