You must have seen or heard about the Supermoon that filled the skies this Monday. All across the globe, whoever witnessed this lunar wonder, captured it immediately. But, for some, the cloudy skies ruined the outing.
The rarity of that occasion is such that it won’t repeat until 2034. And in case you were deprived of this wonderful natural phenomenon, we have selected the best photos of the supermoon taken from around the world.
Here’s a quick rundown
Seeing the #Supermoon is an incredible experience. It hasn't been this close in its orbit around the Earth since 1948, and won't be again until 2034. This is an in-camera double exposure of the supermoon near Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah.

In case you are wondering what Supermoon is all about, we will help you out. A Supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system.
