The supermoon sets behind the Statue of Liberty just before 5am. A supermoon is broadly defined as a full moon that is closer to the Earth than normal. That makes it appear slightly brighter and bigger in the sky. (Twitter/@@DanTVusa) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Supermoon visible from the skies of Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. Check out the sky (if you are lucky enough for a clear sky) at 12.01 am on Wednesday to witness the peak of 'sturgeon moon' from India.
