A moon that’s just super

The moon appears as a red ball on the horizon as it rises over the Inland Valley on Saturday in Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. The so-called “supermoon” was 30% brighter because the full phase coincided with the closet point of its orbit to Earth. The phenomenon, which happens every year, inspired stargazers around the area into the night air to get a better view. The red appearance was due to haze in the atmosphere and was not part of the phenomenon. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
