The supermoon rises behind the fire that is lit in the Pantheon of the Fatherland and Liberty, in Brasilia, Brazil, 13 July 2022. A supermoon occurs when the full moon coincides with or is very close to its perigee, the time of the month when it is closest to Earth. This makes it appear up to 15 percent larger and 30 percent brighter in our sky. July’s full moon is commonly known as the deer moon because male deer fully grow their antlers during this month.
