Supermoon This Saturday, Next One Is a Super 'Blood Moon' on Sept 28th

Recommended Posts

Published on Aug 27, 2015

There's a full moon happening in a couple nights, but not just any full moon. This "supermoon" is happening Saturday night.

It's an event that happens a few times every year and is a good chance for photographers to nab a picture of the moon when it appears at its biggest and brightest.

The definition of a supermoon is when a full moon closely lines up with its perigee, or its closest point to Earth, in its orbit. The moon has a slightly eliptical orbit around Earth with one side of the orbit closer to Earth than the other. The side closest to the Earth is called the perigee and the side farthest from the Earth is known as the apogee.
