Missed the 2017 supermoon? Here are some pictures from around the world
On Sunday, stargazers, astronomers and curious sky-watchers saw the first and only supermoon of 2017. The moon was brighter and appeared larger than its usual size. It was the first in the series of three consecutive full moon supermoons, the next two to occur in January. According to Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at Chicago's Adler Planetarium, there is a reason behind the moon's captivating close approach to the Earth.
