LYNDONVILLE – Elizabeth Carpenter of Lyndonville took these photos of the supermoon last evening. She lives along Lake Ontario. She said the moon was “beautiful” last night.

Last night was the largest supermoon of 2019. A supermoon occurs when the Moon’s orbit brings it to the closest point of the Earth while the Moon is full. The Moon looked much larger than normal when it was rising in the horizon at about 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
