Closer and closer
This photograph of the second supermoon of the summer was taken on Sunday evening, Aug. 10. Because of its closer proximity to the Earth this month, the moon appeared 13.3 percent larger and will cast more reflected light during the evening. The third supermoon of this summer will occur on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
