Supermoon will be the largest of 2014

Posted: Updated:

The Full Moon on August 10 isn't like other Full Moons we've

seen this year. This is a "Supermoon," the closest and largest Full

Moon in 2014. When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass

to Earth, it becomes a "Supermoon," and will be up to 31,000

miles closer to Earth than other Full Moons this year.


This year is the 45th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing, and NASA

continues to make discoveries about our closest neighbor. NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance

Orbiter—or LRO—has captured some of the most detailed images and data of the lunar

landscape ever, providing scientists with groundbreaking information about the Moon's

craters, extreme temperatures, and even where there's water. Thanks to LRO, we know

that the Moon is dynamic, and we're mapping how it's changing over time.
