  • The supermoon that was seen over the weekend is the last of its kind this year. Know why and when a moon is called a supermoon

We have collected the best images of 2017's first and last supermoon appearing 14% and 30% brighter from earth than it normally does. A supermoon occurs when a full moon is closest to the Earth making it appear larger. You obviously can't tell from just watching it, but the moon orbits the Earth in a slightly oval-shaped path.

The moon rises over a building in Netanya, Israel, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017.

That didn't stop photo buffs from stepping out to examine the night skies as the moon reached what's called 'perigee, ' or, the position on the elliptically-shaped lunar orbit when the moon comes closest to the Earth.

Even astronauts at the International Space Station had a chance to photograph the supermoon from a unique vantage point of 250 miles (400 kilometers) above Earth.

The pull of the full moon mean tides will be both higher and lower than normal this week, leading to some Auckland ferry services being cancelled because water levels will be too low.

The supermoon on January 31 will feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable from western North America across the pacific to Eastern Asia. Those supermoons tend to occur when the moon is at its closest, often two or three months in a row.

It said they normally peaked one or two days after a new moon or full moon.

Blue moons aren't that rare.
