A rare blue supermoon — the closest full moon of the year — dazzled stargazers in Southern California and around the world pn Wednesday night.
Saturn joined the celestial spectacle, visible alongside the moon, at least where skies were clear.
It was the second full moon of August, thus the blue label. And it was unusually close to Earth, therefore a supermoon.
If you missed it, it will be a long wait: The next blue supermoon isn’t until 2037.
But another regular supermoon is on the horizon at the end of September, the last one of the year.
