From London to New York: August’s Supermoon Sparkled Across the Globe

SaveSavedRemoved 0


Supermoons have been plentiful recently, but this month’s Sturgeon Moon is the final one of the year and photographers will have to wait 12 months for the next one.

PetaPixel rounds up some of the best photos taken of August’s supermoon, which derives its name from a giant fish found in the Great Lakes that was most readily caught this time of year.

The latest supermoon looked its best just after it had risen on the eastern horizon, when it had a warm orange glow.

When the moon is close to the horizon, it becomes an “illusion”, tricking our brains into comparing the natural satellite with buildings, trees, and houses that make it seem far bigger than normal.

Dan Martland was out shooting pictures in New York City where he was slightly hampered by cloud cover.

“Took quite a bit of persuading, but the super moon finally popped out through the clouds this evening over,” the director of photography wrote on Twitter.
