The Strawberry Moon is the largest full Moon of 2021, and the last supermoon of the year. The Moon’s elliptical orbit brought it slightly closer to the Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter in the sky than a normal full Moon.

Astrophotographers took full advantage of this to capture some stunning images of the phenomenon. Here are some of the best images we’ve seen from around the world.
