The “supermoon” sets over Back Cove in Portland Monday morning in this image made from the city’s Eastern Promenade. The moon this week is closer to the earth than it has been in almost 70 years, and closer than it will be for another 18 years, which makes it appear larger and brighter. It also results in extraordinarily high tides. (Dudley Warner / For The Forecaster)
