Supermoon 2014 Rises Over B.C. (PHOTOS)

Did you take time to look up last night? The biggest moon of the year glowed over Canadian skies on Sunday, shining 14 per cent larger and 30 per cent brighter than the typical full moon.

This was the closest the moon has been to Earth in nearly two decades, according to The Independent.

If you missed last night's display, fear not. Here are some shots of the supermoon rising over B.C.

Landscape photographer Yuichi Takasaka, who specializes in stunning Northern Lights images, shared this time lapse from his home in Lumby:

And Shaun Klassen hung out with a deer to catch the sight:

This particular supermoon also coincided with the annual Perseid meteor shower, which CBC News reports will peak on Tuesday. Supermoons typically appear in the sky every 13-and-a-half months, but it will make a final 2014 appearance on Sept. 9, before returning on Sept. 28, 2015.
