The statue of a man and a boy, a monument dedicated to forest rangers, is silhouetted against the supermoon as it rises at the Sierra de las Nieves (Mountain range of Snows) nature park and biosphere reserve between El Burgo and Ronda, near Malaga, southern Spain, August 10, 2014. Occurring when a full moon or new moon coincides with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth, the supermoon results in a larger-than-usual appearance of the lunar disk.
