On June 23, 2013 the moon was the closest and largest of the year. Supermoons occur about once every 14 full moons in a full moon cycle. Hence the next supermoon will be on August 10, 2014.
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.
The internet is flooded with brilliant images of the June super supermoon!
We have gathered the most beautiful and amazing of them all here!
