Thanks for submitting Supermoon pictures.

There are two more chances to see a Supermoon this year.

The next times are August 10 and September 9.

According to science.nasa.gov, "The scientific term for the phenomenon is "perigee moon." Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon's orbit. The Moon follows an elliptical path around Earth with one side ("perigee") about 50,000 km closer than the other ("apogee"). Full Moons that occur on the perigee side of the Moon's orbit seem extra big and bright."

If you take a photo of the Supermoon, send it to connect@ktiv.com.
