'Supermoon' in St. Petersburg

The full moon is seen rising in the sky above the domes of the Smolny Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia, Monday, Sept. 8, 2014. Monday night's full moon, also known as a Harvest Moon, will be the third and final "supermoon" of 2014. The phenomenon, which scientists call a "perigee moon," occurs when the moon is near the horizon and appears larger and brighter than other full moons. One of St. Petersburg landmarks, the Smolny convent's main church was built between 1748 and 1764 by Italian architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Source: AP
