"Supermoon" lights up

A runner makes his way along a trail on a butte in front of the "supermoon" at Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona May 5, 2012. A "supermoon" will light up Saturday's night sky, May 5, in a once-a-year cosmic show, overshadowing a meteor shower from remnants of Halley's Comet, the U.S. space agency NASA said. The Moon will seem especially big and bright since it will reach its closest spot to Earth at the same time it is in its full phase, NASA said.

'Supermoon' lights up the sky

The largest full moon of 2013, a so-called "supermoon," will light up the night sky this weekend, but there's more to this lunar delight than meets the eye. On Sunday, June 23, at 7 a.m. EDT, the moon will arrive at perigee — the point in its orbit bringing it closest to Earth), a distance of 221,824 miles.
