Last night, photographers around the world turned their cameras to the sky to capture the closest full moon—also known as a supermoon—since 1948. We’ve scoured the web to bring you some of our favorite photos of the celestial event that took our minds off the current state of world affairs for a few blissful minutes.
What makes a good supermoon photo? Critically, there have to be other objects in the shot, so that your brain has some frame of reference for how damn big the Moon looks. NASA has a few more tips for would-be supermoon photographers, so if you didn’t get your money shot already, be sure to read up before trying your luck this evening. (Although the Moon passed its closest point of approach—or perigee—this morning, it will still look pretty darn super tonight.)
