From the Blue Ridge to the Chesapeake Bay both Sunday evening and Monday before dawn, sky watchers photographed the closest full moon to Earth since 1948.

The moon appeared bigger and brighter than normal due to its proximity, especially just as it hung over the horizon.

We wonโ€™t see the moon this big and this bright again until 2034. (Monday night, the moon will also be nearly full, but clouds are likely to obstruct viewing.)

Below are around 30 of the best shots among hundreds shared with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr. ย Thanks to all who submitted photos.
