Every so often, a full or new moon will happen to come closer to Earth than usual, thanks to its orbit around the planet. At these times, the moon will look huge and might even take on some unusual colors.

That's what happened here, in this view of the moon from southern Israel that made the moon look especially glorious. By the end of 2016, we'll have experienced six supermoons. Although somehow, we doubt they'll all be as majestic as this one.
