Monday night boasted the third and final supermoon of 2014. Recall a moon is a supermoon when it’s full and makes its closest approach to Earth in its orbit. This month’s moon is also known as the Harvest Moon since it falls closest to the autumn equinox.

In some areas like Washington, D.C., clouds only allowed a partial view.

The harvest moon comes at a time in the lunar cycle when moonrise does not occur significantly later night after night – a change welcome in an agrarian era when farmers worked late into the night trying to harvest their crops before frost set in.
