The largest full moon of the year, called the "Supermoon," will light up the night sky this weekend. It is at its closest point to Earth as the moon enters its most full phase, creating the cosmic marvel that is the supermoon, or, more scientifically, the perigee.


The moon is seen rising behind the Mar Elias Greek Orthodox Monastery in Jerusalem on June 23, 2013.
