The biggest and brightest full moon of the year 2013, 2014 graces the sky today as our celestial neighbor swings closer to Earth than usual.
The supermoon 2013 will appear 14 percent larger and 30 per cent brighter than normal – the outcome of a cosmic quirk as the moon orbits within about 222,000 miles (357,000 kilometers) of our planet.
Some viewers may think the shining orb looks more dazzling, but it’s actually an optical illusion.
The glowing disc is simply larger on the horizon next to trees and buildings.
But don’t worry if you missed it. The supermoon’s effect should still linger until at least Tuesday.
