For stargazers, this Summer sees three exciting occurrences of a natural phenomenon called the supermoon. 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 Saturday, July 12. If you missed it, take solace in these photos, and make sure to catch the next occurrence when the supermoon returns on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.
