Brenda London took this iPhone photo of the moon
over Bayou St. John this morning at 5:45 a.m.
The perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system occurred this morning. (June 23, 2013) This full moon will be the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August 10, 2014.
They occur about once every 14 full moons in a full moon cycle.
