On Sunday, June 23, a supermoon lit up the night sky.
A supermoon occurs when a full moon gets closest to the Earth during its orbit.
There are several supermoons each year, but the latest supermoon is the biggest and brightest of 2013. It marks the closest encounter between the Earth and moon until August 2014.
Here’s what the giant, glowing moon looked like in pictures from around the world.
