Summer’s first supermoon

Super Lua Brasilia 4578

“Supermoon of July 2014 rising behind Brazil’s National Congress buildings. Clouds blocked much of the moon during the rising. The color of the moon is deep orange, the same color as the Hollan team’s jersey who beat the Brazilian team during the World Cup event this same night.” – Dennis A.

“Supermoon over the port of Vancouver. Technically known as a perigee moon, the marvel occurs when a full moon or new moon coincides with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit.” – Nick L.
