51 beautiful pictures of the supermoon

In case you were in a cave and missed it, the moon came closer to earth in its orbit this past Saturday than it had in the past 18 years and gave the night sky a scene reminiscent of a landscape out of a science fiction film or book cover. This occasion sent photographers scrambling for their cameras and many people, including yours truly, walking around their neighborhood staring up at the sky. A Flickr user “Steve O” snapped the fantastic photo above of the supermoon viewed from Times Square, which is the exact same view I had that night. BuzzFeed has 50 more photos of the supermoon photographed from all over the world.
