Super Moon Cloudy Over Brooklyn, NY

Super-Moon-2014-newsamericasnowNews  Americas, BROOKLYN, NY, Mon. Aug. 11, 2014: The perigee-syzygy or  full/new moon, aka, the Super Moon, failed to shine brightly over Brooklyn and Queens, NY early Monday morning with residents there getting a cloudy view instead of the worldwide phenomenon.

Clouds blanketed the Super Moon at 2:01 a.m. Monday morning as it passed over South Brooklyn, New York.

Scientists says a “supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.”
