The first total lunar eclipse this year occurred on the evening of May 25. Coincidentally, the moon on that night was also the largest and brightest moon that people can see, which meant that the supermoon and the total lunar eclipse occurred at the same time.
Let's enjoy the supermoon and lunar eclipse over Guangdong last night!

A supermoon occurs when the moon's orbit is closest to the earth and at the same time the moon is full. This year's next, and final supermoon will be on June 24. The Moon will appear full for about 3 days at this time.
