We rounded up the best of the night.

If last night's full moon looked particularly large, it's because the moon was the closest it's been to the Earth since January 26, 1948. The moon, called a supermoon due to its close proximity to the Earth, appeared so massive because of its positioning on its orbit. The next similarly large supermoon won’t occur until November 25, 2034 (though look out for a slightly less impressive one in December), so we rounded up the best photos of the event, taken from various places around the world.
