The moon appeared larger and brighter than usual. As the last full moon of the year, this supermoon is known as the Frost Moon. At its closest, the moon was about 363,300 km away from the Earth.

Check out these photos taken from around the world including from Washington, D.C., Cadiz, Spain and Northumberland, England.
