The supermoon on Sunday, August 10 occurred at the same hour of perigee, creating an “extra supermoon”.
The phenomenon means the moon, which is classified as a 'perigee moon' by astronomers , appears bigger and brighter than usual, because of its proximity to the earth.
On Twitter, the hashtag #supermoon2014 was trending as people shared their images.
