A few of the very best photos of Sunday's Supermoon

Viewers Snap Breathtaking Supermoon Pictures From Around the ...

The only "supermoon" of 2017 rose on Sunday night. Stargazers, astronomers and curious sky-watchers get a chance to witness the first and only full moon supermoon of 2017. 22News videographer Don Sutherland captured this video Monday morning. A new moon is the first phase in the lunar cycle that occurs when the moon is in conjunction with the sun - but is not visible from Earth. That often causes the moon to shine with a reddish hue, in what's known as a 'blood moon'. At only 7 percent larger, the moon will likely appear pretty normal to most observers.

A supermoon is seen through Christmas decorations at the corner of Market Street and Third Street Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017 in downtown Chattanooga, Tenn. A third supermoon on January 31 will be extra special.

The nearby perigee Full Moons appear about 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than Full Moons that occur near the apogee in the Moon's orbit.

N Korea Celebrates Latest Missile Launch With Mass Galas, Fireworks
North Korea tested a new ICBM, which Pyongyang claims is capable of reaching any target in the continental United States. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump threatened to impose "major sanctions" against Pyongyang.

But the moon will still be big and full in the coming days, if the pictures are making you regret having missed it, or you want to relive the sight.

A Supermoon is about 40,000 kilometers (~24,855 miles) closer to Earth, on average, than a micromoon, when the moon is at its furthest distance from us.

The next supermoon full moons will be on January 1st and January 31st.
