Chicago - and elsewhere if the weather is nice - you are in for a real treat tonight. The season’s third and final supermoon, which appears as larger-than-average shinier full moon, will rise in the western sky at exactly 8:38 p.m. Central Time.

Hyperlapse of the Supermoon over Los Angeles
The TimeLAX project, started by video-making duo RandyFX and RandyGM, is a growing archive of timelapse photography of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. In a recent video made for the project, the so-called “supermoon” from August 10, 2014, can be seen rising eerily over the electrified cityscape. A supermoon occurs when a full moon or a new moon is at the point of its elliptal orbit when it is closest to Earth, resulting in a super-sized appearance. According to NASA, the moon appears 14% larger and 30% brighter than it does when farthest from the Earth. Though supermoons have been associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, there is no scientific evidence to back up this claim. Incidentally, the next and closest supermoon of the year will be tonight, September 9, 2014, so remember to keep an eye out.

The first photo is the moon on the 7th September and the other two are photos of the full Harvest Supermoon on the 8th September

I accidentally captured the aeroplane flying in front of the moon but I was excited by it anyway, even if the photo isn’t really in focus :3
