I took a few pictures during a hunters supermoon at Bangor bay and molded them together in a gif.

It’s also a hunter’s moon. “That’s because, in other months, the moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, while the October moon rises just 30 minutes later,” National Geographic explains. “That offers more light overall during a 24-hour day, which came in handy for traditional hunters. Since the moon’s orbit is elliptical, one side (perigee) is about 30,000 miles closer to Earth than the other (apogee),” NASA says. “The word syzygy, in addition to being useful in word games, is the scientific name for when the Earth, sun and moon line up as the moon orbits Earth. When perigee-syzygy of the Earth-moon-sun system occurs and the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun, we get a perigee moon or more commonly, a supermoon.”
