The first of two supermoons in August graced the skies on Tuesday.
The gallery of photos below shows pictures of the moon from around the world.
A supermoon is broadly defined as a full moon that is closer to the Earth than normal. That makes it appear slightly brighter and bigger in the sky.
The next one is on the night of Aug. 30. Because it’s the second full moon in the same month, it will be what’s called a blue moon.
