May 6, 2012, on the northeast shore of Saipan (Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands). The full moon at its largest and closest to Earth (“supermoon”). The island of Saipan is basically a huge, ancient coral reef with fringing tidal pools, which catch waves and then allow the water to flow back into the sea in these spectacular and mesmerizing cascades. Beautiful by day. Spectacular by full moonlight. (Photo and caption courtesy Mark Robertson/National Geographic Your Shot)
