Stunning photos of U.S. military ships and the supermoon

Nature provided a stunning backdrop for U.S. military ships moored in San Diego and Portsmouth, Va., this past week as the supermoon shone brightly over them. The Navy and Coast Guard released photographs of the brightest moon in almost 69 years rising and setting over vessels.
