Stargazers, night owls and third shifters will be fortunate to see three different supermoons in 2014. This phenomenon occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day as its perigee, which is the point in the moon's orbit when it is closest to Earth.
The last supermoon of summer 2014 was on September 9, according to NASA.
