Check out the superlunie beautiful pictures from around the world…

On the night of July 13, 12 could be observed a rare phenomenon – the first superlunie 2014. Earth and Moon as close as possible to each other, and our companion was like a huge glowing ball.

The moon reached perigee – closest to the earth point of the lunar orbit. At perigee, the satellite of the Earth is the planet about 50,000 kilometers closer than when it goes the farthest point – apogee. Such changes in the distances between the Moon and the Earth are due to the fact that the satellite’s orbit is elliptical.
