On Sunday night, much of world had eyes on the sky. For the first time in three decades a supermoon — the time when the moon is at its closest orbit to the Earth, making it appear around 14% bigger — combined with a lunar eclipse, giving the moon an ethereal red glow.

The fused phenomena lasted one hour and 12 minutes, and was visible in North and South America, Africa, Europe as well as parts of Asia. However, those living in the northern U.S. East Coast can expect better views than those in the south, due to a storm system, while West Coast dwellers will miss the initial part of the supermoon eclipse due to the timing of the sunset.

However, everyone should enjoy perfect viewing though our live stream and the above supermoon gallery.
