If you missed last night's supermoon, you have one more chance to see it before 2034


There was a historic supermoon last night. Which means one thing for sure: A lot of photos way better than you could ever get on your phone.

Fortunately, you get another shot -- the supermoon will still be visible Monday night.

I'm sick of supermoons. What makes this one special?

This is the closest the moon has been to Earth since 1948, and it won't be this close again until 2034. That's because the moon's orbit around the Earth isn't a perfect circle, so there are times when it's much closer to the Earth than normal, according to EarthSky.

The exact moment the moon is closest was 8:42 a.m. EST on Monday, so you already missed that. But there will still be a great view on Monday night.

OK, we get it, people overhype supermoons a lot.

But there still should be plenty of excellent photos for the taking.

And it does look cool in motion.

Just try to get a little more detail than this.

Pro tip: Your smartphone camera (probably) can't take this shot.
