The past weekend’s supermoon provided plenty of opportunities for photographers. Though the moon was officially full on Sunday, it rose at more than 99 percent from Saturday to Monday.
A supermoon occurs when the moon is relatively close to Earth in its elliptical orbit, so it appears bigger than usual.
Here are some of the best pictures of the supermoon posted on social media from around New England.
A short #timelapse of this morning’s #supermoon setting over St. George’s School in Middletown, RI before it disappeared into the clouds. Hopefully a better showing this afternoon:/ #fullmoon #riwx @ericfisher @NWSBoston @KeiPalCBS @tony_tpetrarca @JimCantore @JenCarfagno @Wx_Max pic.twitter.com/31h5r7VQMb
