Have you had a chance to see the fourth and final supermoon of 2022?

the last giant year moon Thursday night sky lit up. The moon had different colors and appeared larger and brighter than when the moon was at its farthest from the earth.

Referred to as the Sturgeon Moon, the astronomical event didn’t become visible until 9:36 PM EST. NASA says the supermoon will remain in this phase until Saturday morning.

Here’s a glimpse of the giant moon from around the world in case you missed it.
