All of the supermoon’s glory, as seen through the lenses of people.
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls. – George Carlin
Yesterday, the world said hello to the bright, gleaming supermoon – the biggest and brightest one yet since 1984. The full moon howled and captivated many who came to witness its magnificent beauty. According to the Telegraph, the moon appeared 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than normal. Because the moon moves around an elliptical orbit, some of us might have varied visions of it, some being zoomed in, others further.
The perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system (a.k.a the Supermoon) occurs when the moon is close to Earth’s orbit, which then creates that superfluous light and size. The next meet is scheduled to be on the 25th of November 2034. So just in case you missed the lunar phenomenon, we’ve compiled a series of photographs captured by citizens around the world. Till we meet again, supermoon!
