Photos: The Glorious Supermoon That Filled Our Skies Over The Weekend
There are only three times this summer where we'll get to gaze up at the sky and catch a glimpse of a glowing, badass supermoon—and the first one arrived over the weekend.
With a relatively clear sky on July 12, Angelenos were able to snap some awesome photos of the massive moon from different parts of L.A. It looked so large that it made us want to get on our knees and shout out, "We're not worthy!"
Also referred to as the "perigee moon," this phenomenon occurs when full moons on their elliptical path orbit the earth on its perigee side, which makes it appear bigger and fuller. We should expect an extra-supermoon on Aug. 10 and a regular supermoon on Sept. 9.
