The heavens delivered a rare treat to moonstruck romantics and werewolves who rose before the sun on Sunday.

A feat of lunar synchronicity created a Supermoon. It happens when the moon is full and at the same time reaches its closest point to earth in its orbit. It makes for the biggest, brightest moon of the year.

According to NASA, a Supermoon, sometimes called a super full moon, is 14-percent larger and 30-percent brighter. A Supermoon like this occurs about once a year.
