    New moon rising


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Tim Durkan is a photographer and super moon enthusiast who captured this image of a new moon above the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington, Tuesday.

    Durken said, "I have always wanted to photograph the New Moon above the Space Needle as it is my favorite building in the world! I finally got the chance with clear skies, good timing and a little bit of luck!"

    The next super moon is scheduled to rise August 10, be sure to share your images of the super moon with CNN iReport.

    The (visible) surface of the New Moon setting over Seattle on Tuesday night was less than 5% of what you'll see August 10th when it rises silently over the horizon. That full moon will be the largest of the year and will carry the title of "Super Moon" as it rises over the West Coast just after sunset.
