10 Great Shots of the Pink Supermoon From All Over the Philippines
You can still see it tonight.
(SPOT.ph) With most of us not occupied with late-night drinking at a favorite bar or catching a last full show at the cinema, people had a lot of time to stare out their windows and look at the sky on Tuesday evening. The star of the night? The "Pink Supermoon," which contrary to popular belief is not pink, but a glorious full moon that appears to be big and bright because of its proximity to Earth. It was closest to our planet at exactly April 8, 2:09 a.m. (Philippine standard time); but if you fail to get a glimpse of it, you don't have to worry. The natural satellite reached its "fullest" full moon at 10:35 a.m., which means you have another chance to see the supermoon tonight.
For the meantime, here are some amazing photos taken by those who stayed up past midnight:
