WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 3: In this handout provided by NASA, the moon is seen as it rises on December 3, 2017 in Washington, DC. Today's full Moon is the first of three consecutive supermoons. The two will occur on Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, 2018. A supermoon occurs when the moon's orbit is closest (perigee) to Earth at the same time it is full. (Photo by NASA/Bill Ingalls via Getty Images)

As the moon makes its closest orbits to Earth in 2017, sky-gazing photographers have been posting stunning images.

The full moon was 222,761 away. That may not seem “close” but it was still 16,000 miles closer than the average orbit. There will be two more ‘Super Moons’ in the early part of 2018.
