Last night, the moon came as close to the Earth as its elliptical orbit will take it. That means we didn't get just any old moon—we got a ginormous, glowing supermoon that was about 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal. Did you get pictures of the bright, shining orb? We want to see them!

The supermoon happens once a year when two cycles converge. Here's a good explainer from NASA that gives a little more background on how that works. One thing we know? The biggest, brightest moon of the year makes for some great skywatching and fantastic photos. Show us yours below.
