Blue supermoon doesn’t disappoint: A few views from the suburbs

The second full moon of August rose Wednesday night, making for a spectacular sight in the suburbs.

Wednesday’s blue moon also was a supermoon, which means that it was at the perigee of its elliptical orbit — about 18,000 miles closer to Earth than average.

You won’t get another chance to see a super blue moon until Jan. 31, 2037. If you are around to see that, you also will be treated to a partial lunar eclipse.
