Al Scalzo of Medina sent in two photos from the Monday night “Supermoon.” It was the third time this season we had a Supermoon, when the moon is full and at its closest orbit to the earth.

The Supermoon on Monday also was known as a Harvest Moon because it is near the autumn equinox.

Chris Busch of Medina was stepping out of the Post office on Wednesday afternoon when the Sun appeared to cast a heavenly halo over the top of the First Baptist Church. Busch said this photo doesn’t do justice to the scene.

“The actual sight was beautiful!” Busch said.
