Wordless Wednesday – Stunning SuperMoon

Something you might be surprised to learn about me is that I’m fascinated with our solar system and happenings in the sky. Breathtakingly beautiful, yet mysterious and somewhat scary at the same time. I couldn’t resist snapping some pics of Saturday night’s stunning SuperMoon in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

What is a SuperMoon?

A Supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The occurrence happens when the moon gets 31,000 miles closer to the Earth, making it roughly 15 per cent bigger and nearly a third brighter.

The next and closest SuperMoon of 2014 will be on August 10. Keep your eyes on the sky! :)

  2. Lovely shots! It was too overcast over my place that night for me to get a good one. Hopefully the next one though.
