Full Moon at Perigee The moon is at Perigee once every month, but it not always positioned so that it appears full to us, at the same time. When the moon is full at Perigee, it has come to be known as a Super Moon, as this one from July 2014. The moon also has many subtle colours radiating from it. These are created by sunlight reflecting from minerals, mainly titanium and iron, in the lunar soil. These colours will exist in most colour pictures of the moon, but require special saturation processing to bring them out. Putting all these together and we have this, Colourful Supermoon.
