Udo Zirkwitz got up early to take this shot taken at 3:45 a.m. July 11 of the orange supermoon low in the horizon over Cloverdale.

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the closest approach of the moon to Earth in its elliptical orbit. The year 2014 has more in store – one August and another September, adding up to five in total.
