Caption: Measuring a supermoon. Child on a stepladder measuring the size of a supermoon. A supermoon occurs when a Full Moon coincides with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth during its orbit. This results in a large apparent size of the Moon's disk as seen from Earth. Photographed in Catalonia, Spain.
