13 shots of the supermoon from around the world

Whenever there's a supermoon, it's always good to check out Instagram the next day where you can get photos of it from around the globe.

Did you see the full moon Tuesday night? For those who don't know, it wasn't just a full moon, but a supermoon. Supermoons happens when the moon passes closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit, making it appear much larger than usual.

Any time an eclipse, meteor shower or something else amazing visual happens, I open up Instagram. Not only do you get to see what people are talking about, you get to see it from vantage points from around the world.

Here are the shots that caught my eye. To start off, in London, 'tis the season:
