ISS share sensational photos of rare supermoon
The International Space Station (ISS) shared images of the moon rising behind its Soyuz rocket.
A supermoon occurs when the moon’s orbit brings it in relatively close proximity to Earth – that being 356,509km (221,524 miles).
This supermoon is the closest the moon has got to Earth in more than six decades. It won’t appear this large again until 2034.
Social media users from Sydney to Manila to Arizona shared photographs of the rare sight.
Not everyone was as impressed by the moon though, as expectations failed to match the reality.
