On Monday night, it was the final supermoon of 2014. It was 15% brighter and 7 % larger than usual. That made it a sight to capture for photographers. Some of the finest photographs appeared on various blogs and sites. What made the moon special on that night was its distance from the earth. It was only at a distance of 222,698 miles. Not complicating it with stats, in nutshell, the moon was at the closest point to the earth orbit. Here are 10 of the best images clicked by various photographers:
