Spectacular Supermoon Shots From Our Area

Stargazers throughout the world caught a glimpse of the "supermoon." A supermoon, or what astronomers call a perigee full moon, appears larger and brighter than usual. The celestial phenomenon will appear two more times this year. Look to the skies again Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.
