Final Supermoon of the Year Shines Over Denver

A supermoon shone over Denver, Colorado, on September 29, the date of the final “harvest moon” of the season, according to NASA.

Video filmed by local resident Dominique Nelson shows the full moon shining big and bright on Friday night.

“The Harvest Moon peaks Sept. 29. In the days before electricity, farmers welcomed the sight since it gave them more time to bring in their crops before the first frost of the season,” NASA wrote on X.

A “supermoon” occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in it’s orbit, appearing bigger and brighter than other full moons. Credit: Dominique Nelson via Storyful
