    August 2014 Supermoon Over Manhattan


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     szetoa experienced what he called 'pure joy' watching the supermoon rising from Hoboken, New Jersey Sunday: 'This is the second time of this year that I watched the supermoon rise over Manhattan. The first one, in July, I watched it rose over downtown Manhattan at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. This time I watched it rose over west side of Manhattan at Pier A, Hoboken, New Jersey. I was also happy to see so many photography enthusiasts taking pictures of the supermoon right next to me.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    When I arrived Pier A Park at Hoboken, New Jersey, with a friend 10 minutes before the second supermoon rise this year, there were already tens of photographers had their cameras set up on a tripot pointing at Manhattan side. When the moon finally appeared, I noticed even this kayaker on the Hudson River stopped and admired the moon. It was just "beautiful".
