November’s full moon was the closest a full moon has been to the Earth since 1948. It’s called a supermoon, and it occurs when the moon is both full and is at the closets location to Earth along its elliptical orbit, also known as perigee. These are some of the best photos of this celestial phenomenon from around the world.
