Super moon rises during Mid-Autumn Festival
People across China marked the Mid-Autumn Festival on Sunday, despite the cloudy skies in some parts of the country obscuring the moon.
Sunday was also a rare super moon followed by a lunar eclipse.
According to Purple Mountain Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, when the moon is very close to the earth, it is termed as a lunar perigee, i.e., the moon appears very large when viewed from the earth.
Here’s a collection of pictures of the super moon from around the world.
