If you were up dark and early this morning, you saw a dazzling supermoon. May's full moon, the "flower moon," peaked at 6:45 AM just before moonset. This was also a supermoon, and the final supermoon of 2020.

We've talked about supermoons before. This month's full moon occurred just 32 hours after the Moon reached perigee, or the closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Making it a "supermoon." Not only was this the final supermoon of 2020, it was also the last in a series of four consecutive supermoons.


You shared some great shots of the Full Flower Moon! Kris, one of the Sunrise directors, captured the full moon saying goodnight to the MaxTracker Live Doppler.


Janet was able to get an up-close view from her home in Georgetown.
