The full moon rises above Vancouver at the western coast of Canada. The term "supermoon" describes a full moon that coincides with perigee. The photographed full moon of 2013 June 23 was the largest of the year. However as the word supermoon might resemble, the angular size of the moon does not change that much. It's not noticeable to inexperienced eyes. Supermoons holds a record but they are just slightly larger in apparent size. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see another view of this scene some minutes later when the moon reaches higher in the sky. Yuichi Takasaka,
