Last Night's Supermoon Was Gorgeous, and There's More to Come

Last Night's Supermoon Was Gorgeous, and There's More to Come

For stargazers, this Summer sees three exciting occurrences of a natural phenomenon called the supermoon, one of them being last night. This particular vision of the moon is so grand from an earthling's perspective because it's the point in a moon's orbit where it comes closest to Earth — making it appear supersize in the sky.

The first of this season's supermoons took place back on Saturday, July 12. If you missed both of these wonderful occurrences, take solace in these stunning photos, and use them as preparation for when the supermoon returns again on Sept. 9.
