20 Stunning Supermoon Photos Around the World –and closest Supermoon after 68 years!

The next closest supermoon is on November 14, 2016, the closest that we've ever seen it to date. And sad to say, if you’re gonna miss it this year, you’ll have to wait until November 25, 2034! That’s going to be a long wait. So better mark your calendar and don’t miss the extra supermoon this November 16. And while waiting for D-day, here are some stunning supermoon photos from around the world.

 

A supermoon is not an everyday sight. It is a coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest line that the Moon travels to the Earth. As a result, we can see the Moon 14% bigger than its usual size and 30% brighter.

The most recent occurrence of a supermoon is October 16, 2016, and the last record of the closest supermoon was way back in January 25, 1948, that’s almost 68 years ago! But guess what?

The next closest supermoon is on November 14, 2016, the closest that we’ve ever seen it to date.

A flying plane and a slender palm tree are not enough to hide the orange-ish glow of the supermoon. The image was taken amidst a baseball game at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
