VANCOUVER – Residents across B.C. enjoyed a Supermoon this weekend.

It was the biggest and brightest moon of the year, appearing up to 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than a regular full moon.

The event, called a Supermoon, happens when the moon is slightly closer in its orbit than normal.

There is also another celestial treat on the way. The Perseid meteor shower happens on Tuesday and is known for producing unusually bright meteors called fireballs.
