Saturday’s Supermoon Shines Over Los Alamos

Saturday’s supermoon shines bright and large above Los Alamos. A supermoon is a new or full moon, which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90 percent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. There are four to six supermoons a year on average and 2014 will have five. They are the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. The full moon of Aug. 10, will present the closest supermoon of the year at 221,765 miles from Earth. Source: Photo by Leland Lehman/
