PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY - Sat. 7/12/14
Not only did the Mayor's Cup fireworks fall on the night of a full moon but it was also a supermoon event. Supermoon refers to a moon that appears larger because it is at its closest orbital point to the earth (perigee). Obscured by clouds during the fireworks the moon was a yellow eye in the distance observing the multi-colored burst-patterns.
