'Super Moon' over Minocqua
Weekend clouds obscure the moon at its most 'super,' but it reappeared early Monday morning

Though the true "supermoon" was not visible over the weekend in the Lakeland area because of cloud cover, it made an appearance early Monday morning, June 24.

According to Wikipedia ...

The name SuperMoon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, arbitrarily defined as ... a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90 percent of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth.

This photograph was taken just after 5 a.m. Monday morning on Minocqua's Island. The tree in the photograph is located on the United Methodist Church of the Pines' property.
