Tonight?s supermoon - so called because it is the closest full moon to the Earth this year - is particularly rare as it coincides with a lunar eclipse, a combination that has not happened since 1982 and won?t happen again until 2033.

The fireworks may be long gone but the first supermoon of 2018 is illuminating the skies across the world.

NASA is calling this the “biggest and brightest” one for the entire year and so far it isn’t disappointing.

The phenomenon “supermoon” occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day it reaches its perigee, the point in the moon’s elliptical orbit when it is closest to Earth.

Stargazers are sharing their images of this full moon on social media and they sure are giving those fireworks videos posted Sunday night a run for their money.

“The moon looked magnificent,” said David Blanchflower, who snapped a photo of it in the United Kingdom. “Dominating the night sky with its incredible brightness. Awe-inspiring.”

If you miss January’s first full moon – nicknamed a wolf moon – don’t worry, there’s another one this month, on the 31st.

Time to grab your telescope and camera and go howl at the moon. Share your images of the wolf moon with CNN using #CNNWeather or #CNNSpace for a chance to be featured.
