Spectacular supermoon over the Southland

A rare celestial sight is thrilling folks around the world and was caught over the Southland by local photographer Terje “Terry” Canavarro. A supermoon or perigree moon, was visible in the sky between 7:30 -9 p.m. on the West Coast tonight. Scientists say the moon travels in an elliptical path around the Earth — with one side “perigee” being closer than the other “apogee.” Full moons that occur on the perigee side appear larger and brighter. This supermoon phenomenon occurs about once a year.

At one point, the bobcat appeared to be checking out Terry and his camera. Soon it became... Read More →
