A spectacular supermoon lit up the skies across the UAE, and the globe, on the night of July 13.

Known as the ‘Buck Moon’, this supermoon is the biggest and brightest of 2022, being approximately just 357,000km from Earth during its orbit. That’s 200,000km closer than the last supermoon in June, the Strawberry Moon.

If you didn’t manage to catch the supermoon in the skies last night, not to worry. Many residents across the UAE captured some spectacular photographs of the moon illuminating the sky, appearing much larger and brighter than can usually be seen to the naked eye.

Here’s some of the best photos captured of the Buck Moon in the UAE.

If you weren’t lucky enough to witness this supermoon, the next one set to light up the skies isn’t far off. The next supermoon, known as the ‘Sturgeon Moon’, is slated to appear around August 12, 2022, according to NASA, so mark your calendars.

For those who are keen astrologers, the recent full moon was also known as the ‘Full Moon in Capricorn’, which may have pointed to a big decision that needed to be made. Read all about it here.
