Social media erupted Sunday night with stunning photos of the emergence of the supermoon.
 
It marked the largest and brightest moon in our night sky in nearly 70 years. 
 
The LA Times explains that “supermoon” a “non-technical term for a moon that turns full at the same time it hits perigee — the point on its orbit when it is closest to Earth.”
 
See below for some astounding photos posted to Twitter Sunday night. The moon was expected to be closest it 3:23 a.m. Monday morning.
