Stunning photos of the “supermoon”
People around the world last night were witness to the same “supermoon”, the biggest full moon of the year.
The moon was at its biggest at 02:00 BJT in China, drawing many locals from their beds to take creative and stunning photos.
As one of the most anticipated astronomical phenomenons, the mega sized moon only appears when a full moon coincides with its closest approach to the earth. At it’s closest point, the moon is only 356,000 kilometers from the Earth.
The “supermoon” only happens once every 14 months. So if you’ve missed this one you’ll have to wait until September next year.
