'Supermoon' 2013 rises

The largest and brightest full moon of the year, also known as the “supermoon,” lit up the night sky in Malolos, Bulacan, Philippines, and the rest of the world on Saturday, June 23.

The moon’s closest encounter with the earth for all of 2013 was observed at 7 p.m. The moon appeared 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal.

Skywatchers won’t see the supermoon again until August 14, 2014, astronomers say.
