13 of our favourite photos from yesterday’s supermoon

By

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for photographers…”

Last night, the world saw the biggest and brightest supermoon to date of the 21st century.

If you missed it, don’t worry. The moon’s still orbiting pretty close to earth, so if you check it out tonight you’ll be able to get an idea of how big it was yesterday (the difference between last night and tonight will be fairly nominal to the human eye).

Luckily, we’ve got some pretty nifty photographers in Dubai, who were more than happy to jump on the opportunity to get some sweet moon snaps (yes, some of these are clearly doctored but they’re still cool).

So without further ado, here are our 13 favourite photos of yesterday’s supermoon in Dubai.

1. We don’t remember it being that big…
