Local photographer Dave Mayo captured the supermoon last night. Mayo said that the moon was low on the horizon, giving it the orange-red hue. He captured the moon just as it was rising on Monday evening.
A supermoon occurs when a full moon makes its closest pass around Earth, which usually happens every 14 months or so. But as has been noted, this supermoon is especially super because the moon hasn’t been this close since 1948 and won’t again until 2034.
This supermoon will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter. Click here for more info.
