21 Super Amazing Shots From Last Night’s Supermoon

August 11, 2014

Don’t feel too badly if you missed last night’s supermoon, or the so-beautiful-it-seems-fake moment when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth during its orbit around us. In spite of all that divides us, millions of people from Madrid to Rio to Beijing took a minute or so yesterday to engage in a collective ogle at the luminous sphere whose daily spotting is one of the few experiences we all share.

During the supermoon–which by the way isn’t exactly a scientific term–the moon appears 14% bigger and 30% brighter than when it is at its farthest distance away from Earth.

Here are 21 of our favorite shots:

Although people haven’t flocked to movie theaters too frequently this summer (blame it on the World Cup, maybe?), there have been more than a handful of new films to get excited about. From Disney’s Maleficent to the all-new Guardians of the Galaxy, the summer’s hottest films have gotten people talking. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at 2014′s summer hits and misses.

Guardians of the Galaxy

While Guardians of the Galaxy is the latest in a string of rapid-fire Marvel movies, these guardians aren’t your average bunch of superheroes. Based on the Marvel comic-book series, this group of superheroes consists of various imaginary and otherworldly characters, including a spunky raccoon named Rocket Raccoon. To create these diverse characters, the film—which features big-name actors like Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Vin Diesel—required its fair share of special effects. These two images go behind the scenes to give viewers a quick look at the time and energy that went into creating this unique group of superheroes.
