Summer of the supermoons
Super Moon Cloudy Over Brooklyn, NY
Clouds blanketed the Super Moon at 2:01 a.m. Monday morning as it passed over South Brooklyn, New York.
Scientists says 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."
