Supermoon lights up skylines across the world

A huge moon dazzled people around the world as a glowing supermoon rose high over Buenos Aires, Santiago, Istanbul, Frankfurt, New Delhi and Sydney.

A super moon is a name given to a full moon that occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth.

The next opportunity to see a super full moon come as close to earth is expected to be on May 26 which is expected to be bigger and brighter than the April moon, according to forecasters.
