Supermoon On The Rise
The full moon on Saturday appears to be unusually large. There’s a name for this.
A ”supermoon,” occurs when a full moon is relatively close to Earth because the moon follows an elliptical orbit, not a circular orbit. It appears bigger and brighter than normal.
There will be two other supermoons this summer, on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9. A good time for telescopes and cameras on tripods.
