This past weekend, the moon ventured as close to our blue marble as its orbit allows. Meaning that at cozy 31,000 miles closer than normal, that supermoon gave people one hell of a show. And fortunately for us, you guys caught it all on film.
Yesterday, readers of Giz US were asked to show the photos they snapped of Saturday's absolutely stunning display of lunar goodness, and they did not disappoint. We've picked out the most impressive snapshots (and video!) below. But don't worry, even if you missed yesterday's call, it's never too late to show us what you've got in the comments below.
