Supermooon, haze and clouds !

First supermoon of August rising over Western horizon of Lahore through haze and thin layer of clouds appearing as bands over lunar surface.

Supermoon is the term given to a full moon which is a bit closer to the earth than it's usual distance and it appears a bit bigger and brighter in the sky (14% larger and 30% brighter than usual).

This month has another rare super moon on 30th of August which will be called as "blue moon" which is a technical term used for second full moon in a single month and has nothing to do with the color blue.
