Well, actually it’s the lake at the Middle Creek Waterfowl Project, but you get the point. Either way, this past Sunday there was a “Supermoon” in the sky for residents to enjoy. According to the Earthsky.org website, astronomers at one time called them perigean new moons or perigean full moons; new or full moons closely coinciding with perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. The website also said the term Supermoon was coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, over 30 years ago. While this past Sunday’s event featured the closest of these moons, the year 2014 has a total of five Supermoons, with the final one scheduled for Sept. 9.
