Night Light: Viewers Show Off Amazing Supermoon Photos

5 years ago|7 views
You may have noticed the moon looked bigger and brighter than usual this weekend.

This is what occurred over the weekend when the moon was at its fullest on Friday night and still appeared brighter than normal overnight Saturday.
