Monday morning’s supermoon was the biggest, brightest and closest it’s been to Earth in almost 70 years.
“When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth, it is known as a supermoon,” according to NASA. “The full moon appears that much larger in diameter and because it is larger shines 30 percent more moonlight onto the Earth.”
The supermoon on Nov. 14 made its closest pass to Earth as a full moon since 1948.
The moon was already looming large Sunday night, as these photos from around the world illustrate.
