Did you missed the Supermoon? Saturday night May 5 is the biggest and brightest full moon on Earth as the moon passed the closest to Earth. That has made the moon appear bigger than usual called Supermoon. According to National Geographic, "the moon will be 221,801 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, and that close approach will happen within minutes of the official full moon phase, which occurs at 11:35 p.m. ET."

Others believe that the closer moon's proximity will have effects on our planet, as it causes natural disasters in Earth like earthquakes, tsunamis and other disasters. "While we know that during new and full moons the tides are greatest—and if it's in concert with a storm surge it might produce unusual flooding—there is no scientific evidence that earthquakes and other natural disasters are connected," says astronomer Geza Gyuk. If you can't take a second from your busy lives to step outside and admire the SuperMoon which is 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal. Sure you could appreciate Supermoon images above.

Supermoons have been happening for basillions of years but nothing particularly special occurs except a beautiful full moon. Social media Twitter are the source of photos, pictures and images of Supermoon as people acroos the world began snapping cameras moments during Saturday's supermoon as it hovers above the horizon. Check the collection of 2012 Supermoon images, photos above.
