9 photos of the supermoon at the Jersey Shore

    The much-advertised supermoon certainly didn’t disappoint at the Jersey Shore.

    Known as the Beaver Moon in November, it reached full cycle Monday morning, dazzling sky-gazers and photographers during its Sunday evening rise. Mostly cloudy skies last night inhibited views. 

    JSHN contributors were, of course, there to capture the spectacle. See many more at #JSHN on Instagram

    It was the closest and brightest of this year and the largest since 1948. The second of three consecutive supermoon this year, the next comes on December 14.

    But the next time the moon will be as close to the earth as it was Monday morning isn’t until Nov. 25, 2034.
