August 10, 2014 marked the second time this year people from around the globe had the chance to see the “Supermoon”. The supermoon occurs when a full moon cycle coincides with the moon’s orbit being closest to earth, which is called lunar perigee.  The moon Sunday was 13% larger in the sky, and 30% brighter.  Sunday’s moon was 221, 765 miles from earth, which 14% closer than normal.   Take a look at some of the stunning photos from both viewers of WTNH and from people around the globe!
