7 stunning photos of the November supermoon

Social Studies: With a supermoon currently moving through our skies around the globe, we take a closer look at amazing pictures on Instagram from familiar vantage points.

Last night and this morning we witnessed a phenomenon known as a supermoon. It's when the moon passes closest to Earth in its orbit.

This particular supermoon is the closest full moon we've seen in 70 years and as such, it has given rise to some great photos from around the world on Instagram with the hashtag #supermoon2016.

In keeping with my promise to bring you best and the worst of social networks, here are a few awesome shots. (It will whet your appetite for our full supermoon gallery here.)

Also, this video version with the silhouettes in the foreground is hard not to love.
