On behalf of the rest — okay, most of the world: we’re really, really sorry, Australians.

about 24 hours ago, the Supermoon was quite literally an overnight sensation all over the world. Why? Well, it’s just this is about the closest and brightest the moon will ever get to the surface of planet Earth (barring an apocalyptic orbital acident collission — okay, moving on). The last this ever happened was in 1948  (practically three years right after World War II), and the next one is not going to happen again until November 25, 2034.

Many felt this would be a landmark in their lives, and in the lives of their loved ones.

People all over the world were in awe at the majesty and infinite-ness of this rare celestial sight.
