Supermoon rises over the Parthenon

The moon rises over the Parthenon on the ancient Acropolis Hill in Athens, Greece, Tuesday. Tuesday’s full moon, or supermoon, appears brighter and bigger than other full moons because it is close to its perigee, which is the closest point in its orbit to Earth. [Petros Giannakouris/AP]
