This Monday, the world was fortunate to witness a very rare Supermoon phenomenon, the first one in nearly 70 years.
Although the moon was not “super” literally – only about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than an average moon – we did get some breathtaking photos from around the world, making the event worthwhile!
Enjoy some of these photos from around the world, and please share your own in the comments’ section below!
