A quick trip out to the Virginia oceanfront for some images, and a practice shot from the night before. The next Supermoon of 2014 is September 28, see the linked site for an explanation of a Super Moons. Happy viewing!
What is a supermoon?
The distance from moon to Earth varies throughout the month and year. On average the distance is about 238,000 miles (382,900 kilometers). During a month, when the moon is farthest away from Earth it's called apogee, when the moon is closest to Earth it is called perigee. When the full moon coincides with being closest to Earth, or perigee, it is called a supermoon. The term Micro Moon refers to a full moon that occurs when the moon is farthest from Earth, or apogee.
