Our staff and readers were out with their cameras this weekend for what astronomers technically refer to as a “perigee full moon” – a fancy way of saying luna was at her closest point to the earth. Earth & Sky says it was “the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013.” We won’t see another like it until August 2014.
See more photos of the June 22-23 “Super Moon” at EarthSky.org.

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
We’re looking for photos that capture the people and places that make Cornelius what it is. It could be a pretty picture from an event, a youth sports team photo, a pet, a quirky wildlife photo or an oddity. Send ‘em to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll consider them for publication.
Requirements: Send us whatever you have – color or black-and-white JPGs preferred. If you have the ability to do so, we ask that you resize photos to not more than 600 pixels wide. That box on the front page of the site is exactly 595 pixels by 270 pixels, if you’re able to crop yourself. But you needn’t be limited to that size. Unlike our previous banners, with Photo of the Day, we can take any shape.
Wondering if you have something worthy? Call (704-896-0569) or email at the address above. And thanks for joining us!
