On November 13 and 14 this year, the world was treated to the brightest supermoon in 68 years. And the pictures are stunning.

The term supermoon refers to a full moon that coincides with the lunar orb’s closest approach to Earth, or perigee. And the last time it was this close to the Earth was in 1948.

Supermoons tend to look larger and brighter in the sky, offering a rare treat for sky gazers.
