Supermoon: Super pics from around the world

A supermoon can only happen if it's a full moon and if the moon is closer to Earth than usual. Check out these stargazingly great photos!
A supermoon looks bigger and brighter than usual because it's closer to our planet than normal. This photo was taken of it above Marseille in southern France. Don't those birds look tiny!

How annoying. You're about to take a brilliant picture of the supermoon...and then a plane takes off and gets in the way! It does look pretty cool though!

This picture was taken in Hong Kong from a balcony. Looks like they were too busy admiring their plants to move them out of the way!
