Skygazers around the world gathered Sunday night to watch a stunning “supermoon” rise.
The full moon in December is also known as the cold moon.
Supermoons happen when the moon is at its closest to Earth, therefore appearing larger and brighter in the sky.
There have been two other supermoons in 2017 — the first was back in January, and another happened just last month.
