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

Wish to see a supermoon? You'll have three probabilities between Sunday and Jan. 31

The most recent supermoon was around a year ago on November 14th, 2016.

A Super Moon is when the moon appears brighter and closer in the sky because its orbit takes it closest to Earth.

This weekend the moon was at its closest point to the Earth or at perigee. But in 2017, that was visible just once with the December full moon.

Two supermoon full moons are expected in January, on the 1st and again on the 31st, according to NASA.

Sunday night's supermoon was the one and only supermoon of 2017.

The Houthis' Interior Ministry said Saleh was killed by rebels from the Shiite group. Saudi Arabia views the Houthis as an Iranian proxy located just next door.

That didn't stop photo buffs from stepping out to examine the night skies as the moon reached what's called 'perigee, ' or, the position on the elliptically-shaped lunar orbit when the moon comes closest to the Earth.

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

On the West Coast, astrophotographer Kwong Liew captured the bright supermoon setting behind San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge early Sunday morning. Even more so if it's a supermoon.

While the moon is always a handsome sight in the sky, occasionally skywatchers are treated to a special "supermoon".

As is the case with all celestial events, there are a few things you'll need to hope for if you want to catch this year's supermoon. Or why supermoons don't happen every month?
