/ 09:06 PM August 11, 2014

People around the world this weekend looked up at the sky to view a lunar phenomenon: the supermoon.

Known to scientists as a pedigree moon, Earth’s neighbor appears at its largest and brightest compared to other full moons when it orbits closer to our planet. It can even be seen during the daytime.
