Did you catch a glimpse of the last supermoon of 2023?

A few clouds rolled in in true Montana fashion, so the view wasn't the greatest.

A supermoon is an awe-inspiring celestial event that transpires when the Moon's elliptical orbit brings it closest to Earth, coinciding with a full moon phase.

This cosmic phenomenon holds a unique appeal for those who are curious about the wonders of our night sky.

The Moon's path around Earth traces an elliptical shape, resembling an elongated oval, which causes its distance from our planet to fluctuate during its orbital journey.

At its farthest point, known as the apogee, the Moon is positioned at an average distance of approximately 253,000 miles (405,500 kilometers) from Earth.

Conversely, its closest approach, termed the perigee, brings it to an average distance of about 226,000 miles (363,300 kilometers) from our planet.

When a full moon coincides with the perigee of its orbit, a supermoon emerges.

During this captivating event, the Moon appears slightly more brilliant and more prominent in the night sky than a standard full moon.

This remarkable combination of proximity and full illumination grants us the mesmerizing spectacle known as a "supermoon."
